Shift pioneers in creating and evolving a premium fashion and lifestyle business with a common sense approach to sustainability and a belief in business that treats people, planet and profit with equal importance.
Shift designer, Nimish Shah,uses a range of organic, fair trade and natural fibers along with artisanal handloom textiles in both organic and conventional cotton and silk. All fabrics are sourced from ethical and reliable manufactures. All printing is done by hand on old-fashioned wax beds that have inhouse effluent treatment plants and adhere to strict environmental and labour standards. Personal relationships are built with master craftsmen who operate their own small units, which weave, process and print our fabrics.
