Annah Chakola’s family has been in the Indian textile business for over a century and a half, so to say working with fabric is in her blood wouldn’t be that far of a reach. After years of witnessing beautiful fabrics ends and threads going to waste, Annah decided to turn one man’s trash into another woman’s treasure. Each piece that Annah designs for Boho Gypsy’s recycled fabric collection is carefully handcrafted by a registered Global Fair Trade women’s collective in Northern India. She’s forged relationships with many similar initiatives around the globe to help bring her designs to fruition. Supporting other mom and pop shops — no matter where they are — is important to this conscientious entrepreneur.
Cardamom, that rich scent native to the coconut-laden land from where she came. The aromatic fragrance, lingering in the night air...she took it in like it was her last breathe. Spices are the truth of our holiness she believed.
