About Kalavilasa

What's Kalavilasa?

Craft is an economic resource available with a large number of people living in rural areas, particularly those who are not engaged in agriculture. It can be used to improve their socio-economic condition, and thus prevent their migration to urban areas, often accompanied with terrible social consequences. Kalavilasa is a rug design company based in Bangalore, functioning as a social enterprise. Founded in 2012, Kalavilasa is committed to create a trusted brand of rugs, by focusing on innovation and creativity. The rugs which we produce are handmade by craftpersons, working only with natural fibres and using a variety of techniques such as hand-tufting and dhurrie-weaving. We work in close collaboration with the master weavers who represent the second or third generation of a glorious rug-weaving tradition in the states of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh in northern India. Kalavilasa works with a strong emphasis on fair trade and labour, sustainable development, and contemporizing traditional craftsmanship. People fall in love with our rugs, which are created as unique pieces by playing with shapes, colours and textures. These rugs convey emotions and a sense of well-being.

Social Responsibility

From the year 2014-15 onwards, Kalavilasa shall allocate 1% of the value of the rugs produced, to a NGO working towards health, education and skill development of the craftspersons engaged in producing rugs. Kalavilasa is a socially responsible company, and guarantees that no child labour is used in the production of its rugs.
Wool Dhurrie

Wool dhurries are a hot designer choice for almost any room. The most popular floor covering for centuries, the flat and tight weave of the wool dhurrie makes it extremely durable and perfect for 21st century interiors. They are a natural choice of casual settings. With the décor today tending to be increasingly flexible, dhurries are apt for more formal settings too. In addition to the Kalavilalsa online store, these dhurries are available for sale in popular online stores, and also in select craft-specific exhibitions like Dastkar. Read more
