All About Craft: A Glimpse Into Original Madras Trading Company

Original Madras Trading Company clothing is where tradition meets style. The company is rooted in a commitment to quality and authenticity and maintains ‘profound ties to both the American and Indian societies and their two tremendously distinct and yet interwoven cultures’. SAULT New England has always taken great care and pride in the products and brands we sell - OMTC reflects both the values of SAULT as well as offering a product that is an easy decision to put in our stores.

The proof is in the pudding, so to speak, and there are very few apparel companies that are as genuine and bona fide as OMTC. Here’s a sneak peak on how it’s all done. 

Sourcing the Finest Materials:
The journey begins with the careful selection of materials, with a particular emphasis on natural fibers such as cotton and linen. These fibers are chosen for their durability, breathability, and ability to absorb vibrant colors, essential qualities that define Madras clothing.



Traditional Weaving Techniques:
Once the materials are sourced, they undergo a meticulous weaving process that has been passed down through generations. Madras fabric is characterized by its distinctive plaid pattern, achieved through a technique known as handloom weaving.

Natural Dyeing Methods:
Another hallmark of Original Madras Trading Company clothing is its vibrant color palette, derived from natural dyes sourced from plant extracts and minerals.



Artisanal Craftsmanship:
The production of Madras clothing is a labor-intensive process that relies heavily on the expertise of skilled artisans. From the spinning of yarns to the final stitching of garments, each step is carried out with precision and care.



Ethical and Sustainable Practices:
By partnering with local artisans and cooperatives, they support traditional craft communities and help preserve age-old techniques.
