Kara Weaves

A parcel arrived from Kara Weaves of Kerala - a bathrobe and towel

and tiny towels.

And they are tiny!  Unfortunately by the time I ordered the "pretty" colours had sold out.

The parcel was wrapped in calico and hand-sewn. The fabric smells - of India. Nice India. I like it.

"Kara is a social enterprise creating handwoven textiles at the intersection of Craft Revival, Fair-Trade and Good Design." I've bought bath towels from them before - they are light, pretty and dry very quickly.  A worthwhile investment for them and for me.
