Frustrated by a gap in the market for high-quality, socially conscious, ethical, cruelty-free, vegan bags, Karuna Dawn embarked on a passionate journey to fill this gap and offer beautifully handcrafted products that are unique, stylish, and meaningful.
The name Karuna Dawn has its roots in the ancient Sanskrit language:
Karuna - means compassion. It is an action taken to alleviate suffering.
Dawn - is the rising of compassionate & conscious living.
Karuna Dawn collaborates for change and chooses to partner with existing ethical and socially conscious production houses that provide fair trade practices, employment, and education opportunities. Through our choices in partnership, we continue to support social impact initiatives and help to change lives.
Karuna Dawn is a brand dedicated to providing opportunity and employment to the disadvantaged in society and committed to highlighting the power of compassionate choices on the lives of workers.
Keep traditional artistry alive:
Supporting traditional crafts provides a source of income to many villages, keeping rural communities alive and employed within their traditional environment. These highly skilled artisans practice traditions hundreds of years old and your choice to purchase our products maintains the valuable knowledge transfer from master craftspeople to students, keeping this beautiful, unique, and highly skilled artistry alive.
Save garments from landfills:
The average person buys 60% more items of clothing every year and keeps them for about half as long as what we used to 15 years ago - generating a huge amount of waste, most of which ends up in a landfill. Recognising a large proportion of good quality clothing can be re-used, re-cycled, or up-cycled, we have partnered with a zero-waste, ethical brand in India that up-cycle post-consumer jeans and post-industrial fabrics (ie. off-cuts) into beautifully designed, bespoke, handcrafted bags. Not only has your choice in purchase helped save garments from the landfill, but you are also supporting skilled workmanship, innovative design, and the re-shaping and re-thinking of manufacturing and waste.
