We found this book list complied by CNN Styleto help you understand your role as a conscientious consumer, the economic structures that have contributed to the climate crisis, and the visionaries who are paving the way for a better future.
The Culture Trip put together this list of seven reasons why you should visit Tierra del Fuego, the home of Karukinka. If this doesn't make you want to add this location to your bucket list, allow us to suggest one more reason: You can take a tour of our workshop to see just how much love and care is put into every single piece of apparel we make. While we all wait for the days when we can travel comfortably again, we'll leave you with this reading fromThe Culture Trip.
This week we are grateful that our story was told inthis article in Diario Financiero, a Chilean economic newspaper. In it, our founder Felipe Jadue explains the impetus behind starting Karukinka, why he chose Tierra del Fuego as our home base, and what has gone into creating an environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable business.
This summer, we’ve been focusing on some incredible women changemakers around the globe. We’ve featured these women because of their dedication to sustainability, social change and empowering women in their communities.
Stay updated on more changemakers this fall on our Instagram by giving us a follow on Instagram at@karukinkaoutdoor.
Despite what you know about our company’s high-end outdoor apparel, Karukinka isn’t necessarily in business to sell clothing. This company was started to disrupt the fashion industry, to offer a new way of doing business that benefits everyone from our consumers to our partners to the planet. That’s why we are pursuing a B Corp certification.
On July 13th we celebrated Day of the Weaver in Chile, paying homage to women who have dedicated their lives to making artisanal clothing. Without the predominant women-led production team, Karukinka wouldn’t be what it is today.
The circumstances of our summer are certainly unprecedented. It may feel like an odd time to consider your waste, but we disagree. We’ve been given an opportunity to see what we can do without many luxuries we take for granted. Now is the perfect time to prioritize, think local, and shop smart.
