About Kara Weaves

Working at the intersection of craft revival, ethical business practice and good design, Kara Weaves is a fair-trade certified social enterprise. We partner with local weaving co-operatives in Kerala, India, to design contemporary home textiles. Each product is made from a very ancient local fabric called the "thorthu" that is hand-made at traditional wooden looms. This fabric is famous for its ultra-absorbency, quick drying aspect and lightweight qualities, making it the ideal companion for the home, outdoors or travel. Founded by a social anthropologist, Indu Menon and a graphic designer, Chitra Gopalakrishnan, Kara Weaves stands for everything we love about handmade textiles!
