Nuraxi Cotton Collection
Our travel bags are made with raw and coyuchi cotton fabric sourced from Khadi Oaxaca.

Khadi Oaxaca is an incredible organization deeply rooted in its commitment to raw natural materials, caring for the earth and the people they work with. Cotton and textile production is a centuries-old tradition in San Juan Colorado, an indigenous Mixteco village on the coast of Oaxaca. The brown and white cotton they work with is native to the coast of Oaxaca and Guerrero. La Costa Chica, (the coast of Oaxaca and Guerrero), is one of the few sites in the world where naturally colored cotton originates. Not only gorgeous in its simplicity, it has a soothing effect and beautiful drape. The cotton is produced strictly on small plots, without pesticides and is frequently intercropped with corn. It is then hand-spun on wheels designed by Ghandi and finally woven into a sublime cloth on both pedal and backstop looms.

Cotton is timeless and prized for its durable yet soft, absorbent and breathable nature. From the Pestemals we carry to the gorgeous selection of clothing produced by Kavita Parmar, I find artisans and designers exclusively using organic cotton. I choose this fabric as a symbol of my commitment to supporting incredible artisans, our environment, and you.
