The KṸR label incorporates Sri Lanka’s traditional handmade lace into its signature clothing line. This initiative to revitalize a dying craft in Sri Lanka, empowers the less-privileged Beeralu weavers from the southern coastal region of Sri Lanka. KṸR sets a standard for expressing a sense of freedom and serenity through each and every outfit created. Every KṸR creation is a labor of love and caters to those who value and respect local traditions, heritage, craftsmanship and are ethically conscious.
