Do More With Your Money: Kara Weaves

Described as a "creative venture with a social cause" Kara Weaves is the first of it's kind woman run handloom weaving business based out of Kerala, India. Co-founded by a social anthropologist and a graphic designer, Kara Weaves "works with independent teams of weavers and across the state and small sets of rural tailors" to create home furnishing including the hand and bath towels pictured above. The full sized bath towels are currently $10.80 a piece (on sale) and the hand towels are $30 for 10. I love the bright colors and simple striped designs and think they'd add some fun cheer to the bathroom or kitchen. Check out the full shop here

I think it's wonderful that you posted this. It's so nice to be able to get new things and fulfill the needs of your home while doing something great in the world. I would much rather support working women in a struggling economy than going to Walmart or Target. Thanks.
