Barkha's is your source for GOTS certified organic cottons, cruelty-free silks, and handloom and hand-printed artisan fabrics.

Barkha’s Custom Sourcing is a passion project of Barkha over twenty years in the making. With humble beginnings selling handmade art and textiles from India and Nepal, the business has evolved into a full-service fabric sourcing consultancy.

Our mission is to be a viable resource for our environmentally-conscious textile customers. We offer organic sustainable fabrics with the lowest carbon footprint possible.

In October 2014, Barkha’s Custom Sourcing achieved certification under GOTS, the Global Organic Textile Standard. GOTS ensures stringent adherence to the highest ecological and social responsibility standards during all stages of textile production, from the fields, to the mill, to client or consumer.
