Ilai -Upcycled Collections:
Upcycled Collection from ilai is made from industry excess materials. By upcycling these fabrics, we are attempting to close the loop in an industry that creates an enormous amount of waste. Ilai in Tamil language means Leaf. A leaf is perfect example for a natural resource which has its use throughout its life and after.
A fallen leaf becomes manure, leftovers from a lions hunt becomes food for the scavengers, a rotten fruit becomes food for microorganisms. In nature, there is no concept of waste.It is only Human lifestyle which generates waste.
ilai is an effort to get you products which are made from so called waste or creates minimal leftovers which gets absorbed by nature and strengthens life.
