Entry Description

A collection created for my sustainable brand using Piñatex® made of fibre from the waste leaves of the pineapple plant. These leaves are a by-product from existing pineapple harvest, so the raw material requires no additional environmental resources to produce.
Ropes used are made by 'Retyrement plan'-Mumbai, using waste scraps of cotton cloth from garment factories hiring migrant workers thereby giving them employment.


‘CoralbySeema’ is a way to channelise my love for nature combined with free flowing creativity. I want people to feel loved and move one step closer to nature when they wear my creations; made from lengths of cloth hand-dyed and printed using ingredients from nature. I am committed to being an ecologically sustainable brand that will leave unforgettable impressions in the world.
I have the gratification of creating a design and bring it to life. Art has my heart & soul and I’m forever grateful to have found my calling to create beautiful tomorrows for our planet earth.
