SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES AND TRANSPARANCY

 

MANUFACTURING

_

India is home to 7 million artisans (the population of Hong Kong. Yup, that’s right) and to KARIGAR co-founders Sindhu and Kanak.

Countless villages, thousands of ambitious women artisans looking for employment and centuries old skills make it possible for us to create with what’s naturally and locally available. After all, wasn’t that how it had been done all those years ago?

Since 2015, we have worked with more than 3,000 artisans and have a dream to make it a million Some call it crazy. We call it IMPACT AT SCALE. 

MATERIAL

_

Each piece in our collection uses the purest natural materials sourced from nearby villages to support local communities and to stay true to our promise of following sustainable production practices. 


The KARIGAR Capes and the KARIGAR Scarf are made from 100% pure wool sourced from free-roaming sheep in the the mountains of Himachal Pradesh. The sheep graze freely on pesticide-free pastures, making our wool absolutely pure.


The KARIGAR Shawl is crafted from 55% pure wool and 45% Wild Peace silk that's part of a bio-diversity initiative in the Himalayan mountains. The Peace silk is hand-spun by local communities offering employment to thousands of women, while conserving the forests.
