Our Team

Moving in Circles
Our zero-waste system

IRO IRO is a circular design collective based in Jaipur. We define Circular Design as a practice driven with empathy, empathy towards all beings, towards the planet, towards ourselves, and through empathy keeping materials in the value chain. For us the best way to execute such a practice is to work with waste, indigenous practices, people and the planet.

Discovering an Indian Identity

Decolonising Fashion

“The rural arts of India are the arts of the settled villages and countryside, of people with lives tuned to the rhythm of nature and its laws of cyclical change, an art with a central concern with the earth and with harvesting…The rural arts of India are the visual expression and technological processes that had remained static for over two thousand years…Rural arts are also the arts of people living in forests and mountains, the ancient inheritors of this land, who claim to be the first-born of the earth…..”(Jayakar, 1980/1989)
