All Soul products use the finest Indian textiles in pure natural fibres (cotton, linen), using baby-safe dyes. Their products are safety-tested by strict international standards. They support local, small-scale industry even as we sell around the world.
Soul provides a wide range of fabrics so that everybody can find something that suits their tastes — and their pocket!
Their popular handwoven textiles are woven in weaver’s cooperatives in various parts of India, run by the Government of India and non-profit organizations, regulated by fair trade laws. Needless to say, no child labour is involved at any stage.
All their fabrics use only pure natural fibers and the best quality dyes to suit tender skin.Their jacquard fabrics are woven in an ethical and environment-friendly mill from Southern India, which uses only wind and solar energy to run their entire factory. They are a completely green manufacturing unit and after using the energy they need they have surplus to send back into the grid.
Soul Full Buckles are lightweight, breathable and very comfortable baby carriers. Made completely out of 100% natural fibres, they are ideal for all climates. These highly adjustable carriers fit users ranging from petite to ‘plus sizes’! Buckles make them quick and hassle-free. These are sturdy soft structured carriers (SSC) that have been designed to carry your baby in an ergonomic and natural position. They distribute the weight of the baby evenly on your own body, and can be worn in front and back carries.
As an environmentally conscious business, they do not use plastic packaging at all.Instead, their carriers come in sturdy unbleached cotton cloth bags which are handstitched in-house. They can be re-used to store the carrier, as a laundry bag to wash the carrier, or even as a storage bag around your house. Thinking – literally – outside the box, we keep our cardboard cartons plain by choice. Since they are usually discarded right away, we don’t wish to waste our planet’s valuable resources printing on something of such short-term use.
Soul Celebrates the Forests of India! Vana, Suma and Kudi, our beautiful new Soul Full Buckles with block-printed panels. Each design has been carefully hand-printed by skilled traditional artisans using wooden blocks and all-natural colour dyes on 100% khadi (homespun and handwoven) cotton. The ensuing fabric is light, airy and a delight to your eyes!
For this block print collection , Soul discussed fabric qualities and possibilities with our weavers and over months, developed these handspun and handwoven pure cotton Khadi fabrics that are light and airy and appropriate for baby skin. They were then block-printed by hand using patterns that we felt best represented our vision. The final carriers were made backed with our customary monochrome woven cotton fabrics to add strength and also set off the beautiful designs.
In Kannada, Vana (‘forest’) celebrates the beauty of the forests of Karnataka, a land known for its spectacular flora and fauna.
Suma, from our Khadi block printed collection is a dedication to the vast variety of herbs and flowers that bless this land. 🌼 Beautiful motifs, block printed by hand using natural dyes on homespun fabric forms the panel for this beautiful Full Buckle carrier.
The hope of a brighter future for our children is the inspiration, Kudi. Third in the series of our Khadi hand block printed Full Buckle carriers .
