    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 markets to retail – find us here…

    We’d like to take a moment to thank all the good folks who’ve stopped by to discover and purchase Kalai products at markets around Sydney recently, from Kirribilli to Castle Hill. I also want to say how much I’ve appreciated those who’ve just stopped for a chat, discussing the possibilities for a sustainable future, and appreciating the ethical focus of Kalai. That’s the greatest thing about doing markets, you get to meet so many kind and lovely people. And I’ve been so thrilled to know that so many of us are aware of and are on the path to living a more ethically sound and sustainable future. We’re going to…

I may sound dramatic, but let me give you some context. I’m currently midway through and online course called Fashion and Sustainability: Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World. It’s free – check it out even, if you only have a passing interest in the issues of sustainability, you won’t regret it. So far, for me it has been eye-opening, frightening, inspiring and motivating all at once. But there’s no message clearer than the importance for us all, as consumers, to make conscious…

    Join the Fashion Revolution

    April 24, 2018 marks the fifth anniversary of one of the largest industrial disasters in human history. The collapse of the Rana Plaza complex in Bangladesh, where factory workers were crammed into structurally unsafe buildings to manufacture garments for some of the world’s biggest fashion brands, claimed 1138 lives and injured more than 2500 factory workers. The victims were mainly young women. It was the wake-up call that we shouldn’t have needed, but it became the long-overdue catalyst for a revolution. Fashion Revolution Week begins April 23 and has in the five years since its inception by UK fashion designers, Carry Somers and Orsola de Castro, become the largest fashion…

    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…
