Speaking about their upcoming collection and its emphasis on organic clothing, Apurva Kothari, Founder, No Nasties, says, “We do not make just T-shirts, we are a full fashion brand now. We only make 100 per cent organic and fair trade clothing and it has not been that difficult for us as we don’t have lofty plans; we are happy being a small niche brand.”

Organic a growing segment

The organic clothing sector is growing with more consciousness among consumers and many more brands entering the space. Kothari is very optimistic about the growth of organic segment. “Around 80 per cent of our Indian sales are from metros and 20 per cent are from Tier II. As far as consumers’ acceptability towards organic clothing is concerned, they are beginning to understand it more and more as there is more media coverage and more products on offer for them,” he explains
