My inspiration for Karāgha arose from a love of India, traditional crafts, colours, and a life-long interest in textiles and design. Karāgha means “loom” in Hindi.
Karāgha specialises in hand woven textiles that are produced by ethical weaving co-operatives and social enterprises in India.
Spinning,weaving and dyeing create livelihood opportunities for the artisans involved.
Natural fibres such as wool, cotton, eri-silk and cashmere,are used to create a beautiful range of scarves, stoles, shawls and throws.
Natural dyes are sometimes used, complimenting the traditional and contemporary designs which are handmade by atisans in India.
The scarves offered by Karāgha are of the highest standard and are recognised for their hand loom authenticity and traditional techniques.
