Redefining fashion since their launch
in 2015, The Summer House caters to the ‘cerebral chic woman’ with a focus on sustainable clothing. The brainchild of Shivangini Padhiyar, 38, and Rekha Datla, 36, the brand was launched with the idea of taking sustainable luxury to the masses through outfits that blend tradition and modernity. For inspiration, the two looked no further than their own childhood. “Both of us grew up in an environment where quality and purity of product trumped everything else. We wanted to build something that was in tune with our lifestyle,” says Datla. Exploring newer fabrics and cuts, The Summer House has recently launched a range of swimwear to cater to your beach vacations. “It is produced out of Econyl, a fabric made from fishing nets and gear abandoned in oceans. We donate all the leftover fabric to NGOs like Swavlambi so that there is almost zero wastage in that aspect,” says Datla, emphasising on the brand's ethos of zero wastage. They use responsible practices and manufacture in small batches to keep the quality in control.
For summer this year, they have also launched a new collection titled Girl from Kutch that has 25 pieces inspired from the terrain, in fabrics such as organic cotton, dye-free denim, artisanal and printed silk.
