About Us

 

LAW India (looms & weaves) is a woman owned social enterprise, started in 2013 as a bold attempt to promote India’s rich handloom heritage across the world. We started with more than 100 innovative and trendsetting handloom home furnishing products made and marketed by this enterprise. The products are woven at small weaving hamlets of Kerala which have a heritage of over 900 years. looms & weaves made sure, with minimal role for middlemen, the customer gets the benefit of good handcrafted products at the best rate. Our social and environmental commitment only allows us to use natural fibers duly processed in the time-tested traditional ways and natural, durable colours making our products eco-friendly as well as baby-friendly. Our home linen is long-lasting and retains freshness even after years of use. Durable, attractive and authentic, these products are available in variety of stunning colours. Natural dyes used in our bath linen products nullify any harmful effects to us. The environment friendly dyeing process protects us from any harmful effects to the skin, ensures a hassle free washing and years without any fading.

Our goal of ensuring safe food to the citizens of the country led us to start few initiatives for pesticide free and chemical free natural food. We then slowly moved to organize organic and fair trade farmers from different parts of the country, especially women famers. Their homestead products are sourced and marketed under our homestead spices division. Now more than about 150 different food products are sold under our brand, both online and offline. We also initiated to sell homemade ethnic treats prepared by housewives. Now 2 dozens of ethnic treats, specially South Indian snacks are selling under this category. We also started selling Ayurvedic and herbal beauty care products and other Ayurvedic products from Kerala under our brand.

Now we are supporting more than 500 women groups in the field of weaving, farming, handcrafts and home based business across the country.  We envisage to build up rural artisans and farmers country wide and empower them to sell their produce and skills, so that they can be self reliant and independent by their own , as dreamt by Our Mahtma, Gandhiji.

We  also launched our premium range of 100% pure Ayurbedic wellness products which come under the brand called ‘Malabarica’Vegan ayurveda.
