    “Maybe Tomorrow” and The Love Shack Music Club

    Tiarnie is the muse for Kalai’s Love Shack Music Club collection of organic cotton, handloomed throws. We created the range with the carefree summer vibes of a music festival in mind, with Tiarnie as our headline act. Hailing from rural Wallaroo, on the outskirts Canberra, Tiarnie is rocking the Sydney music scene with her raw honest lyrics set against catchy rock riffs and punchy percussive beats. Multi-talented Tiarne is an up-and-coming singer, songwriter, guitarist and, most importantly, storyteller. Her unapologetically honest lyrics evoke the emotions of a twentysomething navigating life, love and ambition in a contemporary world. And her lyrical vulnerability is equally matched by a fierce vocal tone, captivating…

    Who the hell is Tiarnie?

    Sydney’s latest music sensation is a girl, her guitar and band playing infectiously melodic rock’n’roll riffs against powerfully visceral lyrics. Singer-songwriter Tiarnie embodies raw, honest storytelling with heart-bursting emotion. We all have tracks that define moments in our lives. It’s a playlist comprising songs that have touched our hearts at just the right times and brought us to our knees, fist pumped in gratitude for the recognition of our pleasure and pain. This fresh-faced twentysomething is already wise beyond her years. She has lived a lifetime in her songs that perfectly unite kick-arse melodies with rock’n’roll attitude. She sings of our life and she plays it loud. Who the hell…

    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…

    Our Story – Part One

    Our Story – Part one, We all have a story to tell, a starting point that inspired us to become what we are today, what we do today and what we teach our kids for their future. Ours is just like everyone else’s, but with just a little twist. It’s a story of a far away island. It’s a story of robbery, CIA espionage. It’s a story of a small family with a 15-month-old baby taking on a world superpower, a communist regime and winning for both surfing and ocean conservation. This story is the foundation for a big part of what Kalai stands for today. To break it down,…
