WHAT MAKES OUR APPAREL UNIQUE

HANDCRAFTED



Our partners in Tierra del Fuego

handle every step in our production

process, from shearing sheep,

producing yarn, cutting fabrics,

to assembling each piece by hand.

Our ownership allows for full quality

control which makes for a better

product 100% of the time.

PERFORMANCE FOR THE PLANET



White half of each garment if made up of

natural fibers hand-dyed with vegetable ink,

the other half is comprised of the best

technical fabrics that perform no matter what.

Our Polartec® fabric is made of

recycled P.E.T. plastic,

which means your garment will not only perform,

but is environmentally-sound.

VERSATILE



Multipurpose use is always top of mind

when designing our apparel.

Yes, your layers should look good,

but they also need to withstand

whatever elements you throw at them.

Karukinka apparel is designed to go from

mountaintop to city street and

everywhere in between.
