"Sevya" is a Sanskrit word that means "caring through service." Sevya is dedicated to preserving the indigenous art forms and cultures of India by supporting the artisan communities who uphold these traditions. All of Sevya's fair trade products are made by artisan groups using centuries-old craft traditions, with the finest natural fibers and materials. Sevya works with artisan cooperatives throughout India to develop contemporary styles and designs that showcase their traditional and eco-friendly methods of handcraft--including hand-loom, block-printing, tie-dye, and embroidery.
Kumari Tops are made with 100% cupro crepe, which is a soft crepe fabric that is made from the linter fiber of the cotton seed. This fabric has the look, feel and fall of silk, but the lightness of cotton. These fair trade tops are a free size style that is designed for comfort and elegance. While having the appearance of a poncho, the sides are stitched closed for greater coverage.
