The Orclo Story: The reason behind starting a sustainable clothing line
We have always dreamt of starting a men's clothing brand since our college days. As college students, we used to admire fashion. For us, fashion means self-expression and not status. As we grew, we always had in mind to initially start our fashion brand as a side hustle. For us, it was not easy to start a business as we are from a middle-class environment. The initial days were very complicated and troublesome. But we never gave up.
We were always on our toes and kept reading about fabrics, materials, raw materials, designs which gave us a better understanding of clothes. As we were researching clothes each day, we used to get horrified to know about the facts on the clothing industry. While our analysis got more profound and more substantial, we understood that polyester fabric and other such materials take an immense period of 20 to 200 years to decompose.
We decided to start slowly and met a few clothing manufacturers, factories, mills to understand it better. Later we stabbed on recycled cotton and organic cotton. Knowing about this fabric blew my mind. Such recycled and organic cotton materials last for a long time and are kind to the environment. These are eco-friendly and use less water in manufacturing. Hence, we decided to shift towards sustainable
Then we never looked back and decided to start Orclo with a clear vision- to create organic clothing made in India.However, we've always been a believer in sustainable living. Through our brand, we would like to show the world why sustainable fashion is essential.
Three strong reasons why we believe in sustainable fashion
Sustainable fashion strives to create garments that are ethically made and are environmentally friendly.
Sounds simple, right?
Today mills and factories use tons of chemicals, many of them carcinogenic, to make clothes. Most of the garments are made from plastic due to fast fashion. Such fast fashion is creating a catastrophe for our oceans and leaves an environmental footprint. So switch to sustainable fashion.
Sustainable fashion believes in better working conditions and good pay. Break the cycle of waste and pollution to aim for sustainability. Sustainable fashion focuses on workers' rights, gives them a decent salary for living, and provides safer working conditions.
