Sourcing & values
Using sustainable materials and methods wherever possible is central to Kaleido. Natural dyes, minimizing waste and using scraps and up-cycled materials are some of the aspects incorporated into pieces. We also use recycled paper products in our packaging and marketing materials.
Artisan relationships are also the heart of Kaleido. Valuing artisans’ work and time is unfortunately not the norm for many of the things we consume and buy. Kaleido hopes to be a small part of that change along with many other like-minded organizations that seek to make just and dignified work the only acceptable practice. Makers are compensated at or above wages that they set themselves.
