The company is led by women who work with independent weavers in the Kerala handloom industry and rural tailors to create quality handmade fabrics for the home. Kara Weaves "hopes to bridge the gap between this traditional weaving art form and a contemporary lifestyle".
The fabrics in all pieces are either gossamer thin ecru cotton with ornamental threads woven into it or finely woven cotton towel material called thorthu, traditionally used as an ayurvedic body-wipe fabric.
