Kara Weaves, India

Kara Weaves works with local weavers in Kerala, India to create contemporary design textiles using traditional fabrics and techniques. 

Each product is made from local fabrics that are handcrafted on traditional wooden looms. The production is complex: the yarn is handwoven, washed, dried and then spun on bobbins. Only then does the actual weaving begin - a process that takes several days. 

Since February 2013 they are certified members of the Fair Trade Forum of India, the WFTO country network and WFTO-Asia.

Zuahaza, Colombia

 Zuahaza was founded in 2019 by designer Tatiana Ordoñez. Zuahaza means “my sister” in Muisca, the language of the indigenous peoples who lived in the Cundiboyacense region of Colombia. And that's exactly what Zuahaza stands for as a social enterprise: the embodiment of "sisterhood", good working conditions and mutual support in the design and manufacturing process. 

Tatiana's designs are inspired by the grand diversity of Colombia and brought to life together with a partner artisan cooperative in Santander.

Zuahaza wants to share Colombia's diversity, history and future vision with the world through her unique products.
