Ichcha doesn’t just create a line of beautiful home products, they also work to greatly improve the lives of their women artisan partners in India and to promote the heritage craft of block printing, hand weaving, and hand embroidery. Ichcha is committed to having a minimal impact on the planet by only working with natural vegetable dyes made from flowers, leaves, minerals, trees, and bark. This ensures their products are safe for their artisans, consumers, and the earth. Ichcha’s handwoven fabrics are made from chemical-free cotton, handspun, and intricately woven on nomadic looms.

Through partnerships with NGOs, Ichcha’s artisans are taught both Hindi and English, and receive medical checkups for themselves and their families. Ichcha’s artisans also set their own prices. Each piece is designed in New York by the three sisters who run Ichcha and are handcrafted by women artisans in rural communities all across India.

Fair Trade
Our Fair Trade international brand partners work with makers and artisans outside the US and are committed to paying living wages, providing safe and healthy working conditions, sourcing materials local to their region wherever possible, and implementing eco-friendly practices across their manufacturing processes.
Heritage
Heritage products draw from age-old techniques, traditions or art forms that are in decline or in danger of being lost forever. Made Trade curates these heritage products from around the world to support artisans creating these traditional crafts, to share their cultural heritage with the world and do our part to preserve these centuries-old techniques.
Sustainable
Our sustainable brand partners are committed to responsible sourcing and intentional design that creates minimal negative environmental impact. Some of their methods may include sustainably harvesting raw materials, upcycling/recycling used materials (such as plastic or dead stock fabrics), or using all natural, earth-friendly materials (such as plant and mineral-based dyes).
Vegan
Vegan products on Made Trade contain no animal products or byproducts. We curate vegan brands who source natural materials as sustainably as possible, do not use polyurethane or other synthetic faux leather materials (instead use plant-based faux leathers, such as Piñatex or mushroom leather) and implement fair business practices with their suppliers and their employees.
