WHO ARE WE?
'Karpāsa' means cotton in Sanskrit. Karpāsa London is created with a purpose to "BUILD A BETER WORLD FOR ALL!". We bring handmade and handcrafted eco-friendly organic cotton home textiles & apparels to every UK household.
“Natural Living, Luxury Feeling, Social Belonging", this is what we desire for our customers through Karpāsa products. Visit our website www.karpasa.co.uk for more information.
We, the founders of Karpāsa London are from Kannur referred as 'Manchester of India’. This place was known for quality hand crafted handloom cotton products and exported luxury products around the globe including exclusive collections to the White House and Buckingham Palace. Kannur handloom industry is currently dying due to weaver’s society unable to compete with machines on mass production and, weavers are not ready to compromise on quality - rightly so! We want to do our bit to revive the situation. Having used the product and experienced the quality our self, we decided to take it to the UK household and introduce the feel and luxury of handmade/ handcrafted organic cotton home textiles and apparels.
WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE?
'BUILD A BETTER WORLD FOR ALL!', that’s what Karpāsa London stands for - now and for ever! We live our purpose in multiple ways
We promote natural & healthy living for our consumers. We use sustainable fabrics and our cotton is natural, organic and eco-friendly to ensure the safety of our customers all times.
We stand by the weavers and farmers! The weavers at the handloom village in Kannur “City of Looms and Lores” live in penury. We are here to revive a dying handloom industry by support struggling weavers and providing them with better income, access and support structure.
We believe in giving back to the society. Access to education at early age is the greatest gift we can give to the next generation to be the best version of them. We pledge to give back a portion of profit to the society to make education accessible to underprivileged children and we do this by cutting out the middle man and ensuring the children we sponsor get the best care and education.
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT KARPASA?
Organic Cotton– Our products are made from organic cotton fabric. The clothes, bedsheet we use every day goes through lot of chemical processing and these chemicals are in touch with our skin 24 hrs a day. In Organic cotton, there is no use of pesticides or other harmful chemicals.
Handcrafted / Handloom – Most of the clothes we use today are made from power loom just because machines can mass produce. Our products are handloom which means material is soft in texture, more resilient, allows better air flow to get a great night sleep, have a human touch, have better strength and known for better recovery from creases & wrinkles.
Sustainable fabrics – All our products are made from sustainable and natural fabrics. Synthetic fabrics rely on the petrochemical industries for their raw material, this leads to global warming, water shortage.
