Zeme Organics Private Limited
Zeme or Žemė (pronounced as Zhe meh) means ‘goddess of the earth’ or ‘earth mother’ in Latvian and Lithuanian mythology. Accordingly, everything in nature that is born, grows and dies belongs to this earth mother, who protects and nourishes the planet. Zeme as an organic clothing company was conceptualized in the spring of 2006 in San Francisco, California and was created in India , in December 2007 by Arati. While living in the beautiful city of San Francisco as a student, Arati got to learn about organic farming and furthered this interest in organic clothing by taking up an internship with a San Francisco based organic clothing company. Logically, the next step for Arati was to use her knowledge and passion for organic cotton to design and market organic clothes created in India through her own label. And thus, Zeme was born!
