For all of us, life has changed drastically in the last few weeks.
We are thinking of you all and hope you and your dear ones are well despite these extraordinary times.
Since March 25 India is under a 3 week lockdown with all non-essential businesses closed completely, public transport suspended and strong limitations in movement.
Luckily, we are all working from home and are not too affected. There are only a handful of cases in the three states we work – Assam, Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh. Everyone is very careful and we have enough work for the next few weeks.
We are committed to continue the making of our textiles in order to keep up a routine that assures everyone the usual income.
An Update from Assam:
Unfortunately, our production for summer is currently on hold, but we hope to be able to bring back some of our garments which are out of stock as well as some new, beautiful colors by May.
For us as a business, it is a very challenging time. It is our priority to keep the team busy yet we also need to cover our overhead costs.
We feel with all the small businesses out there.
We now have free worldwide shipping on all orders and also our gift cards are available.
For those in isolation who are diving into crafting themselves, our yarns are great for a knitting or weaving project.
Thank you so much, we are very grateful for your support in these difficult times.
Stay safe and warm wishes from Ladakh,
Catherine, Angtak and the entire KAL team
