Took 3 old favourite items of clothing - 2 tops and a dress - to be be made up in fabrics selected from Asparagus. I chose 2 plain khaki cotton and a hand print Keralan cotton, and was very happy with the results. One top in particular I absolutely love - its an identical replacement for a much loved garment, and has been tweaked in size just where needed. Likewise the dress is super, a copy with improvements (larger pockets!) So, just brilliant if you know exactly what you would like, and such good value compared to home.

Asparagus Clothing, run by the lovely Aji in Varkala, uses only organically grown local fibres and dyes. He has an extensive selection of fabric, from Khadi (hand-spun cotton pioneered by Mahatma Gandhi) to pure Silk. We are particularly fascinated by his use of Ayurvastra - organic cotton dyed with medicinal plants like turmeric, tulsi and sandalwood. The healing Ayurvedic dye infuses into the fabric which brings well-being whenever it’s worn. Truly functional clothing where you can quite literally feel the difference!!
⠀⠀
A company like Asparagus is highly relevant to sustainable living. Fibres and textiles are often overlooked when we talk about sustainability, even though their growing and production methods are some of the most polluting. From genetically modified cotton seeds to chemical dyes and synthetic fibres poisoning waterways, the textile and fashion industries have a lot to account for...
⠀⠀
...But Aji and Asparagus are living proof that dressing well can feel good for all, including Mother Earth! 🌏💚

Aji and his team are really helpful with top quality material and AMAZING finished products. I got some linen shorts copied and they are quite literally an exact match. Very helpful with advice and not even the slightest bit of pushiness which is a nice break shopping in India. Set prices too and its reasonable! My partner gave the most confusing instructions ever for some pants and somehow the tailor nailed it with perfect fitting end products. Very impressed.

The salesman was very helpful and not at all pushy. Lots of fabric to choose from My husband was measured for a short sleeved tailored shirt with coconut shell buttons. It was ready the next day in time for our departure. Fit perfectly. Thanks!
