About

 

 

Apparel manufacturing is not kind to the environment! It is the 2nd most detrimental industry to the planet and all of its creatures … Including us! 

It’s been said that, “The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.” At karuna we are taking an oath of compassion by working hard to be conscious in our practices every step of the way... BUT we can’t do it alone!

By supporting brands like Karuna Apparel, you can rest assured that you are doing your part to look good and also do good

  

 

 

As two huge animal lovers, it is our promise that a percentage of our proceeds will always go back to animal rights groups around the world. Here are a few organizations we are currently showing the love to: 

 

Plastic is literally destroying our planet, and yet we keep producing more and more of it. A Karuna we advocate for reducing our plastic consumption, while simultaneously making use of the plastic that already exists. Each outfit purchased from Karuna keeps 25 plastic bottles out of our oceans and landfills.

 

Watch this video if you want to learn how to be a part of the solution and not the problem:

 

We love making beautiful things, and doing good while we're at it. We've found a way to do both.

Karuna 2.0 still saves animal lives, and now it saves the environment, too! We've also designed a new reversible bra which gives you TWO tops in ONE! Say it with us, "WIN-WIN!"

 

Our 4-way reversible design was born from our desire to put our customer fist. When you are kind enough to support US, then WE want to give you the most out of your support. When you pre-order our Demi Bra you’re getting two tops in one, and you’re doing good while you’re at it.

Reverse it - Mix it - Match it - Go topless… whatever makes you happy.

 

 

 

 Say hello to Demi! She comes in the following color combinations:

  • Azure / Marigold
  • Blush / Peppermint
  • Pearl / Periwinkle
  • Lilac / Scarlet

 

It's the perfect name for the perfect legging! Virgo is compassionate, caring, nurturing and extraordinarily tender-hearted - Virgo strums the human heart strings in the zodiac. As they do, Virgo creates beautiful music within their communities all around the globe. How so? Well Virgo's shine brightest when they are called to a noble cause. They particularly excel in standing up for justice. They simply can't tolerate injustice are mistreatment of the weak. 

 

 

 

 

Why have a plain and boring yoga mat when you can have a mat that supports animals, the environment and artists? We wondered the same thing. That’s why we have decided to team up with talented artists from around the world and showcase their extraordinary work on our 100% biodegradable yoga mats

 

 

For this line we collaborated with the British badass Tom Abbiss Smith: @tomabbisssmithwww.tomabbisssmithart.com

 

 

Karuna began as a brand solely focused on saving endangered animals with the proceeds from our gear. It wasn’t until Karuna 2.0 that we had an AH-HA moment when we realized that we cannot save animals without simultaneously saving the environment. So, what we’re saying is, Karuna 1.0 is not made out of recycled plastic bottles, but it still saves animal lives! Which we think is still pretty cool!

  

 

If you're confused about how to choose your sizing, don't worry - we'll be sending out a survey where you can pick your preferred size and color once all of our pledges are in and our campaign is funded!

 

 

WHY ARE GROCERY STORES STILL OFFERING PLASTIC BAGS??? Not only are they still offering plastic bags, but now they're profiting on them. We just can't stand it!!! So, we've created these high quality Karuna tote bags -- the perfect eco-friendly replacement for a plastic bag. 

They roll up nicely and fit right inside your glove box! SO, the next time you get asked "Paper, or Plastic?" you can say, "Thanks, but no thanks" 

 

 

Stop dropping your phone on your face while taking selfies with this cool little invention.  Problem solved. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our hearts are filled with a burning desire to build Karuna Apparel into the most compassionate and conscious brand it can possibly be. We are thrilled to set out on this mission to change the apparel paradigm where everything and everyone benefits from the existence of our brand, but we can't do it without YOU! 

Thank you to everyone who has already shown your support, we know who you are and we are truly appreciative and humbled by your love. 

Please, keep spreading the word, and together, let's LOOK GOOD, and DO GOOD!
