Pre-Loved Podcast: Christy Dawn x Oshadi Collective
Today is a bit of a two part segment. First we’re speaking with Aras from the Christy Dawn team. Christy Dawn is an ethical and sustainable brand, founded by husband and wife duo, Christy and Aras, and they’ve been producing from deadstock since the brand's beginning. We’ll learn all about deadstock, what inspired their brand practices, and more.
But the story goes deeper in that! Along the way, Christy and Aras have discovered a desire to push past sustainable production, toward regeneration.
They’ve teamed up with a textile company in Southern India, called Oshadi Collective, to start a regenerative cotton farm, which will allow Christy Dawn to become a fully regenerative Farm-to-Closet company.
Part two of the episode takes us to Erode, India, where the Oshadi Collective founder Nishanth, shares more about this seed-to-stitch supply chain model and the historic roots of regenerative practices.
I think you’re gonna love this one for listening, and let’s dive right in!
