Emma’s Emporium “ethical, practical, beautiful and unusual.”

Emma’s Emporium sources alternative and unique fashion, accessories and home interiors. Founded and run by Emma Chance; with a BA Hons in fine art, a love of clothing and textiles, and a passion for travelling, the adventure began in 2006, inspired by direct experiences of Indian culture and generosity.

Emma’s Emporium clothing is made for us by Jitesh, Lalit, and Kamlesh Rankawat and family, based on the outskirts of Pushkar (the Holy City of Rajasthan), in North West India. Famous for its sacred lake and annual camel fair, the small town is surrounded by the desert and is a melting pot of Indian and western spiritual tourists, hippies, backpackers, tailors and monkeys.

The Rankawat’s have a small factory on the upper floor of their family home where they employ a small number of skilled tailors from the surrounding area. We have worked with the family since we started trading in 2006, each year increasing the amount we buy and making regular small orders throughout the year to provide a sustainable income. This allows our business’ to grow together organically, benefiting them and their local community. We work together to choose fabrics and develop our designs, to produce a varied and unique collection combining the latest festival fashions with classic ethnic pieces.

2017 see’s the launch of Emma’s Organic Cotton range of trousers, dyed with Azo Free dyes.

Emma buys directly from the makers at a price set by them ensuring a fair wage for all involved, we don’t bulk buy or request bulk discounts and we keep overheads to a minimum to keep the price low for the consumer and high for the producer. Our silks range is made from recycled sari fabric, and any scraps are used to make bags and headbands.
