The Sustainability Movement - The sustainable fashion movement is here. The greatest chance we have of turning the tides lies in our consumer choices, we can no longer afford to give financial support to brands and businesses who don’t hold sustainability as a chief business focus. At Pinky & Kamal, we believe it is our responsibility to re-calibrate old business models, and journey towards a brighter and more sustainable future – an industry that operates in harmony with nature & people. It is truly a gift to be part of this movement.
