About the Brand

 There are plenty of labels around getting high scores for 'effort' lately, but this incredible label gets an A+ for embodying the highest standards of both human empowerment and sustainable fabric choices. 

Alcana was born from a desire to support traditional textile artisans and empower the maker. Hannah - the founder and designer of Alcana - has spent so much time in India, getting to truly know her makers and artisans, and the brand showcases their incredible talents, while not compromising the use of eco-fibres.


Designed in Byron Bay and mostly crafted in India, the texture of the hand-spun, hand-loomed, organic cotton is the hero of this label. Think textural and earthy, feminine, timeless luxury.
