Akané, pronounced as Ah-Kah-Nay, is the Japanese word for madder root orManjishthawhich has been used as a natural dye material traditionally to derive a deep red colour since ancient times.
We, at Akané, create naturally dyed, versatile and timeless products. We respect the process of making a product by involving local artisans, sourcing locally and ensuring zero waste. We make use of natural dye materials that are easily available in the environment such as flowers, seeds, roots and leaves. Akané believes in creating value rather than just a need for consumption through our products. We wish to spread awareness about slow fashion and inspire people to make the right decision by providing sustainable alternatives for our customers.
