Kasu: hand made and fair trade
Kasu is on a mission to make the world a better place by the shopping and travel choices we make.
Through my shop, Kasu Emporium, I import fair trade, hand made and ethically sourced products for conscious shoppers.
I am committed to being a part of the change to create sustainable incomes for my suppliers.
I also like to share my good fortune: 10% of profits go to help people living in poverty in Australia and India.
MY INDIGO STUDIO IS NOW OPEN
I now have a showroom in Castlemaine, Victoria.
I'm very happy with my new indigo coloured walls: they make a great backdrop for all the colourful stock!
So, if you are local or visiting the area, contact me for opening times and address. Or see the Journal post below.
After years of research and travels in India, I now have an extensive network of makers and not-for-profit organisations to buy stock from.
I search out fair trade, hand made, slow fashion, zero waste, upcycled, recycled, organic, eco friendly, and cruelty-free products.
From one of my suppliers:
"...Our dream is to create and support sustainable livelihoods for India’s 9 million weaver and artisan communities, while promoting handmade, natural and sustainable products to consumers globally, crafting the change we want to see in the world, together."
Kasu is proud to be a part of that process.
I acknowledge the Dja Dja Wurrung people as the sovereign owners of the country where I live and work, and recognise that sovereignty has not been ceded. I pay my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging. I also pay the rent >>>
