“dwij" (द्वि = Twice, ज = Born), means second life in Sanskrit.
dwij was founded to address the ills of fast fashion by providing inclusive growth of society, through upcycling.
We upcycle post-consumer jeans and post-industrial fabrics to make upcycled bags. Check out to know more.
We strive to be a zero waste ethical brand.
We choose each element carefully, and maintain high hygiene standards to produce fresh looking and long lasting products.
Soumya is a Mechanical Engineer with a Masters degree in Commercial Vehicle Technology, Germany
Her experience in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) triggered her interest in sustainability.
She adopted sustainable and zero waste lifestyle after realizing the eye-opening reality of the garbage being generated by an average human being.
In present times, due to fast fashion, majority of textiles are incinerated or dumped into landfills. Dwij is an initiative to extend the lifecycle by conserving the resources.
"I believe that Minimalist lifestyle is the core to sustainability, and needs to become the new norm of the society."- Soumya.
