Empowering Communities, Building Resilience
who we are
Conceived by 15 year old twin brothers, Rushil and Aarush Khanna, House of Udyog is a non-profit that procures recycled clothing material and turns them into trendy and fashionable, yet affordable, pret wear for young men and women across India. Endorsing the "Make in India" initiative of Prime Minister Modi, each piece of clothing is single artisan-made and provides a reliable livelihood for each of our in-house tailors. Although, currently, our team is small, with your support, we look forward to reducing our world's carbon footprint by sustainably designing clothing - one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse emissions - while contributing to the economic upliftment of our underpaid artisans.
what we do
The process of our recycled fabric - Once the knitting clips are collected, then the sorting is done colour wise, black, blue, orange and red, they are processed again into fibre. Since spinning alone of these does not regenerate fibre so regenerated polyester (made from recycled pet bottles example: mineral water, coke, plastic bottles) fibre is added as per the colour for the spinning process. This material is naturally recycled hence there is no chemical treatment. This material is called Melange Yarn and is one of the finest yarns for casual wear, it is GRS (Global Recycle Standard) Certified.
