(in the Hindu, Buddhist, and Jainist tradition) respect for all living things and avoidance of violence towards others.
himsa → ahimsa
Ahimsa (cruelty-free) leather = Slaughter-free leather sourced from animals that have died from natural causes.
Khara Kapas is known for handcrafting beautiful products from pure Indian fabrics. For us, purity of fabrics also means purity of life - leaving no space for violence towards animals.
A lot of the team at Khara Kapas have pets, so using anything else besides cruelty-free leather was not an option. Khara Kapas' bags use certified ahimsa leather only, while being beautiful in design and functional in form.
