kaito is proud to present its collection of designs made with Organic Kala Cotton Fabric.
Kala cotton is indigenous to Kachchh and by default organic, as the farmers do not use any pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. It is a purely rain fed crop that has a high tolerance for both disease and pests, and requires minimal investment. It is both resilient and resurgent in the face of stressful land conditions.
The sowing of Kala typically takes place after the first rainfall, when enough water has been collected to ensure a good crop. Just one more rainfall is required after this to grow the crop. The farmer is guaranteed a minimum production of Kala which becomes a net gain as the cultivation of Kala incurs practically zero costs.
