GIBIE™ Home Furnishings Ltd is now a member of Color Ashram Community (CAC)

An association to drive the true colour re-evolution.

 

June 04, 2020. Ahmedabad, India.

GIBIE™, the sustainable, luxury and utility-based bed and bath linen company, today announced about their association with Color Ashram Foundation (CAF), India. Being a member of Color Ashram Community (CAC), GIBIE™ will be empowered to drive the common agenda of promoting the use of natural colours in the larger world.

 “Our association with CAC will play a significant role in our journey to be a part of the movement to embrace the application of natural colours and bring the much needed change among manufacturers and even consumers about the way we use and consumer colours”, said GIBIE™’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, Hitesh Anand. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, and while we make a tremendous impact through our herbal dyeing methods with zero chemical discharge, it is a proud and satisfying moment for us to begin this association as a milestone. GIBIE™ will stand committed towards environmentally friendly manufacturing practices and products.

 “Be the change you want to see in the world” says Namrata, Co-founder and coordinator for Color Ashram Community at CAF. “It is a choice we can have as a consumer, and an option we can offer as a company or brand. It is not about what we should or should not do. That debate yields no result in action” says Arun, Co-founder and technical innovation head at CAF.

Most colours used today are synthetic based and have hazardous impact on human life and ecology. There is practically no viable solution to deal with the toxic waste from the industries using these colours. GIBIE™ as a member of CAC, will stand committed to using only verified and standardised natural colours in the manufacturing processes.

The benefits of herbal colours as proposed by Colour Ashram Foundation:

1. Plant based dyes
2. Skin friendly, healthy Ayurvedic sources of colours
3. Scalable and standardised dye process
