About KARMASUITSYAonETSY

Sales 3,538
On Etsy since 2019

Eco friendly, Ethical Fashion Hand Made in India and Finished in England.

At Karma Suitsya we promote Eco friendly, Ethical Fashion. Promoting a healthier planet Karma Suitsya began trading at small festivals in the UK nearly 20 years ago after travelling our beautiful world since the late 80’s. We have built up a loyal customer base on the UK festival circuit & love being amongst the amazing energy that festivals create. We have our own unique designs created from beautiful fabrics with quality tailoring. Having always been keen to live in harmony with our planet and to protect it’s precious resources we began to source eco friendly material for many of our garments from vintage silk sari which we came across during one of our early travels to India.

We endeavour to use the very best recycled sari, which are breathtakingly beautiful & so lovely to touch. Sari are available in various qualities & we have established excellent contacts for the sourcing of fine sari pieces to create our designs. This up-cycling and repurposing of sari helps us to promote Slow, Ethical Fashion. Promoting a healthier planet.

In late 2019, Karma Suitsya began selling online in our new Etsy shop. Our favourite garments include our unique steampunk style Corset over dresses, tail skirts & underbust choli tops. Also popular are fairy dresses, Afghan harem pants, culottes, jackets & silk gift bags It is our goal to continue with the same ethos that we have nurtured at festivals. We are very proud of our ethical outlook which has been shaped by 30+ years experience of travelling.

Although we are not fair trade certified, we consider our business practises and those of our factories to be fair trade.  Workers are paid fairly for their work & are employed in comfortable working environments, being treated with respect. We have been working with the same small factories for over 17 years and they are all family owned.
By working directly with the manufacturer, rather than use a middleman, we are able to ensure that profit goes to the primary source. Most of our range originates in India, with additional items coming from Nepal & Thailand.

Finally, all of our packaging is in eco friendly materials and re-cycleable everywhere in the world.

Namaste 🙏
