Kaiyare, which means handmade in Kannada, wears it’s heart on its sleeve, quite literally.
From the hearts and hands of women artisans from villages around Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh.
Kaiyare brings you a range of fashion accessories, made, using not just traditional skills of weaving but also the traditional wisdom of using waste to make useful, beautiful things.
Kaiyare's range of home accessories are made from agricultural waste like banana tree bark. Usually discarded to rot, the bark is hand twisted and knotted and then crocheted to make beautiful bags, baskets and other home accessories.
The fabric lining is the waste from our tailoring units so that we are practically a zero-waste. Trained by The Kishkinda Trust, Anegundi, Kaiyare's team of artisans include women who are excited to be earning for the first time in their lives.
