Arthur & Henry                                                         Organic Cotton. Fair Trade Cotton. Ethical. Beautiful.
On 15th August 1947 beautiful, diverse India gained its long struggled for independence. 

Arthur & Henry proudly source our organic and fairly traded cotton from Indian farmers and our shirts are made by skilled Indian tailors. 

Happy Independence Day.

The colours of the Indian flag represent courage and sacrifice, peace and truth, and faith and chivalry.  In the centre was a spinning wheel (charka) representing Gandhi's goal of India being self-reliant, it now represents the eternal wheel of the law.  Apparently all Indian flags have to be made from khadi - the traditional Indian handspun and handwoven cotton cloth.
