A co-operative for People, Product and Planet
We are Karunkinka, a co-operative based in Tierra del Fuego, in the Chilean Patagonia. We are the first to sell our community produce all over the world. Our manufacturing facility is located in the homeland of Selk’Nam people, an indigenous tribe which now has been displaced and disintegrated from the islands. Karukinka honours the tribe with utilizing commonly used colours by the people and producing trendy clothing.
Qualities of Karunkina clothes:
KARUKINKA – Ethical, Sustainable and Luxurious Outwear Handcrafted in Patagonia offers a variety of clothes inspired by the skills of native people of Tierra Del Fuego. Kojniken Sweater, an outerwear product by Karunkina, has a slim fit under-garment attached to it, to give the user best fit. Its material is breathable as well as very stretchable to allow body movements and ventilation. Its sleeves are made in a wave panel to match the temperature unevenness. It is made with the best natural and technical fibres.
What is special with new Kojniken Sweater:
We generally use Polartec’s fabrics, but this time to try something new and different we have used Power stretch fabric in kojniken sweaters. This is not only about looking good, it is about supporting the things we believe in. One can feel proud to be wearing a product made with sustainable material.
They are best for you as well for your families. Make them feel good by telling them how they are substantially helping women and bringing a change in people’s lives.
We are doing it to enable our people to stand on their feet. We are not a big corporation with huge funding and a vast shareholder base. We do not use cheap products and cheat on our people either. For us, you are one of us; and we are loyal to you as much as we are loyal to our people.
We live on the philosophy of people, product and planet. These are the words we live by every day or at least try to. At Karunkinka we do not use words like employees, rather we use words like associates. Karunkinka people do not work for someone, they are the company themselves.
Why are we doing this?
We want people to join in our community. Together we are a stronger and greater team. Think about how many people can we help by just using these products; and how much we can help the environment as well with these pretty and warm clothes. We want to be able to help more people by expanding our boundaries. The only barrier is fewer facilities and resources available to us.
Come and join us by pre-ordering our products. We do not ask for charity, we only ask you to join us on this journey towards a sustainable future. Help us in bringing changes in all of our lives. Help us for a better future by making this dream your dream.
