    Our new range of blankets are here!

    Great news – our new range of blankets are here! And just in time for the warmer weather. Our Love Shack Surf Club range of blankets was conceived by us and ethically created by talented artisans in Rajasthan. Made from three layers of organic cotton, these dohar-style blankets are block-printed by hand, and we couldn’t be happier with how they’ve turned out. They’re available in our online store now and at the ethical retail hub The Green Street Collective. After some helpful customer feedback, we’ve got two sizes this time: 210cm x 210cm (queen size) and our original 150cm x 200cm. Both are perfect for the bedroom, beach, picnicking –…

    What inspires your mixtape collection?

    What would inspire your mixtape? Would it be special or memorable moments in your life? Perhaps it would be your favourite bands? Would it be the people that have passed through your life: the friendships, loves and lessons learnt? Or maybe, like me, it would be all of the above, and more. The mixtape concept is the inspiration for Kalai’s debut clothing line, which is on it’s way as we speak. It’s a collection of basic shapes made for accessorising, personalising, mixing up however you like, however inspires you. I grew up in the days when giving someone a mixtape was the ultimate way to show them how much you…

    From us to ?

    Because we care about people, women’s empowerment, the preservation of the planet, the sustainability of our environment and of livelihoods, and making a meaningful impact, we feel it’s important to give back. Kalai is still in the infant stages of development, we are learning as we go, but we want to start as we mean to go on – with a spirit of generosity, kindness and compassion. So, every three months or so, we would like to offer a gift pack of Kalai goodies to someone who deserves to feel special. We are all surrounded by those who are struggling in one way or another. Our fast lives don’t always…

    Let it rain

    So a week or so ago we hit the road with high hopes of chatting to plenty of people and businesses that are on the same sustainable, ethical path as us at the Byron Bay Surf Festival. But the rain gods had other plans! Try as it did, our little gazebo simply couldn’t protect our fabric and leather stock from the heavy, constant rain. And without coffee either, we had to call it and pack up. Kudos to the stallholders that were able to stick it out on the rainiest of Byron days – such as the sustainable and charity-minded handmade jewellery brand Two in the Sun – the marketgoers…

    Our story – Part Two

    Kalai is a brand driven by the need for social and environmental change. One of our foundation stones was laid in Cuba in 2011 when we became startlingly aware of the global need to save our oceans from widespread pollution. You can read that blog – Our Story – Part One – here and watch the movie we made documenting our journey. The second foundation stone of Kalai is my mother’s legacy. She was tirelessly selfless in all aspects of her life, a woman determined to better the lives of others. My name is Krishna and together with my partner Blair and our son Kahali, we are Kalai. I was…
