The holiday season is fast approaching and here at Swahlee we’ve put together a list of Swahlee items which will make thoughtful gifts for the loved ones in your life. By gifting from Swahlee, you can know you are purchasing ethically, sustainably made goods with enduring impact.

All of our products are made with high quality natural fabrics which are one or more of the following:

Handloom – woven by hand, supporting traditional artisan crafts
Recycled – incorporating natural, recycled yarn
Deadstock – surplus fabrics already created in the garment industry
Upcycled – repurposing second-hand traditional Indian saris into new creations
Remnant – made with our own scrap and leftover fabric pieces.


With each gift, you have the opportunity to tell the story behind the product - the story of the makers - and the impact a safe, fair job has on the lives of the women who work at Swahlee.

For the chefs & hosts:

Cloth Napkin Set – This set of four cloth napkins is made with sustainable, reusable neutral fabrics that coordinate with any table decoration scheme.

Kitchen Apron – Keep your holiday outfit tidy wearing our kitchen apron with two sizable front pockets.

For the staycationer:

Ahimsa Silk Pillowcase – This 100% mulberry silk pillowcase was made for a luxurious night’s sleep. Its smooth, gentle surface is ideal for hair and sensitive skin. As a natural fabric, silk is a natural temperature regulator. Sleep peacefully knowing no silkworms were harmed in production. The Ahimsa Silk PIllowcase comes safely packaged in a giftable cotton pouch. 

Rest Shirt & Rest Pants - We took care to make sure the handloom cotton fabric used in the Rest Collection is oh-so-soft and that the fit of these pieces is relaxed in all the right places. Pair our Rest Shirt with our Rest Pants for a matching set. Or, in a warm climate, pair with our Rest Shorts.



For the person who loves finding what's "unique”:

The Upcycled Sari Tie-Neck Halter Top & the Upcycled Sari Button Midi Skirt – Each of our Upcycled Sari Pieces is one-of-a-kind. They are made by upcycling pre-loved 100% cotton saris. They are extremely soft and have a vintage feel. No two are exactly alike.

For the multitasker:

The Capsule Collection - Our Capsule Collection pieces are designed to simplify getting dressed. The mix-and-match pieces in our Capsule create effortless style in comfort: all pieces are made with natural, breathable fabrics. Not sure where to start? Our Wide Leg Trousers and Sleeveless Reversible Top are trans-seasonal favorites.

Sustainable Wrapping:

Gift Wrapping Cloth Set – Cut down on waste with our elegant reusable gift-wrapping cloths! These fabrics make beautiful, elevated packages when wrapped and tied around a gift. They also travel much better than paper ribbons and bows. They can be further decorated by adding dried flowers and foliage.

We hope this guide will help you to give meaningfully this holiday season!
