To promote sustainable living, Sirohi products are handcrafted with either natural or up-cycled waste materials.
What Makes Our Products Sustainable?
Hours To Weave
We provide a carefully calculated set of metrics during production to show you the sustainability of your purchase. One of the main components of this is the hours it takes our artisans to weave your product. This information is provided to highlight the exclusivity and intricacy of every Sirohi product that is especially handmade for you.
Waste To Wow
This measures the amount of waste material that gets upcycled into a wow product. This measurement is carefully calculated for every Sirohi product so that our customers are aware of their contribution to a circular economy and the amount by which they’ve reduced their carbon footprint. An average Sirohi product is made from 6.5 kgs of waste/natural ropes.
Every kilogram of textile or plastic waste reused in making a Sirohi product means a direct reduction in the carbon emissions that would instead be released after burning that amount of waste material. Our sustainability metrics are calculated on the basis of internationally credible reports. Keep on reading to learn how we calculate our CO2 Savings.
Sustainability Calculation Measures
Research by the bureau of international recycling shows that rescuing a single kg used clothing from landfill can help save up to 3.6 kgs co2 emissions. WHO global challenges report states for every kg of recycled plastics, the co2 saving is 1.5 kg.
We use ropes made from clean, unused and hygienic waste from packaging units and fabric waste from textile units. This essentially means that we use multi layer (HDPE and LDPE) plastic and cloth waste materials created during the manufacturing process that has not yet passed through the consumer, but would have otherwise been dumped and discarded; adding to the global plastic waste. Instead, we upcycle these leftover plastic and textile waste materials into coirs or ropes to weave products using traditional Indian styles.
