Idea

The textile industry uses an astonishing 9 trillion gallons of water annually. In India alone, 425 million gallons of water are used daily, with around 500 gallons of water are used in the production of just one pair of jeans.

GIBIE was founded with the aim of reducing the harmful effects and pollution from current linen production by creating fabrics through a combination of 5000-year-old Ayurvedic Herbal dyeing techniques and modern weaving technology. We strongly believe our linen has superior qualities to chemically enhanced and dyed linen, and that there are sufficient resources available in nature to develop superior fabrics. We want to tap into the benefits and utilities that come with natural fibres and dyes.

After extensive research and development, the plant-based dyeing processes developed with our partner in India are now ready for production at industrial scale through identified suppliers and manufacturers who can achieve our production goals. We have executed a test run on Amazon, resulting in an impressive response, and are in close talks with a buyer in Canada.

Awards & recognitions:

1. Selected for Green Product Award, 2020

2. VEGAN Brand accredited & approved by PETA

3. Member of Color Ashram Foundation

Funds from this raise will be spent on recruitment, launching key sales programs & marketing initiatives, as well as scaling production & product ranges.
