We first found out about Kara Weaves when looking for window sheers and 100% cotton for the home, and we fell hard. With pieces for the bed, kitchen and bath plus gold-tinged window treatments, these are bright updates of classic home linens. And there's a story behind the beauty...

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. See all available hand towels (set of 3 for $25!), window coverings, and bed linens at Kara Weaves.
