“SORA means SKY in Japanese, and ZORA is just transformed from SORA. A simple translation of SORAZORA is SKYSKY. However, there is a way in Japanese to imply plural or express various by repeating the same word. Although the word SORA is not used in this manner by Japanese, "SORAZORA" is our way to suggest that nature always gives us a great variety of colours, shapes and motions, providing unlimited moments like the sky.”
Sorazora is a tiny eco-fashion business by Nathan and Hiromi. Each year they spend 3 months in Nepal for production and research where they source all of their materials and fabrics themselves. Nathan and Hiromi have a hands on approach to production and work very closely with several factories. With many countries leading a throwaway lifestyle, they feel that consumers should pause before any purchase to consider the impact that it may have on the earth. The use of wild Nepalese hemp guarantee that no chemicals have been used to produce these fibres. Natural dyes also have an enviable environmental profile as no harmful chemicals are used. This ensures harmony with the earth and your body. Through choosing wild Nepalese fibres Sorazora supports remote villagers who harvest the raw material and handspin these fibres through to pattern cutters and tailors who bring the designs and materials to life. Sorazora feel that help via ethical and fair trade is essential for the livelihoods of their families.
