Purn vritt is based upon ancient Indian philosophy of a lifecycle, where every aspect of life is related to its completion of its lifecycle.

Soul (Atma), which is as per ancient Vedas are considered to be eternal. The ancient Vedic literature of India has provided the clearest answers that the soul continues on its journey to another body accordingly. The soul exists in all beings who are a part of the cycle of life and death. But do souls exist in non-living beings? Answer is certainly a No. However, humans are the only beings in the nature who are capable of endorsing soul to something which do not follow the cycle of existence. They are known as linear.

These linear products have caused immense damage to the ecology and biodiversity of mother earth. Time has come when we follow our indigenous philosophy of circularity in our products or creations as well to heal.

Purn vritt is the latest avantgarde collection by Indo-German designer duo Prakash and Georg, resembling the indigenous performing art of Jharkhand which speaks about conflict between circular ( jeevan chakra) and linear (jeevan Rekha) lifestyle.

The collection is made of materials which are biodegradable and have no trace of negative impact on mother earth. The principal material is organically produced peace silk, where silkworm completes their full life cycle and become beautiful butterflies. Sericulture is performed under strict organic procedures, including zero carbon measures.
Patterns of this collection is made using zero waste techniques.

This collection is plastic free (crude oil free) in terms of auxiliaries. Materials such as Silicon/ plastic boning, polyester mesh can-can, chemical adhesive-based fusing, pasting etc. are avoided, and instead alternative materials are used from natural resources like bamboo or cane.

Printing is done with specially created block prints that have low or zero impact on the environment and are also biodegradable. This process is positive on the environment while keeping indigenous printing art alive.

We strive to bring circularity in fashion as per our ancient philosophy of purn vritt through every step of creation.
