MODERN MEETS HERITAGE
This versatile garment takes craft to a whole new level! We use minimalistic European design to translate centuries-old weaving techniques. Made by a team of skilled rural artisans, your Cape is hand woven on traditional wooden looms in a remote village in the Himalayas using ethically sourced, super fine wool.
Designed in Amsterdam and handcrafted by rural Himalayan artisans, the Cape Uptown has the same features that you love so much about your Cape Cosmopolitan:
- Free-size armholes (fits upto size EU 48)
- Multi-functionality (wear it short, long, like a vest, under a jacket or instead of a coat and more!)
- 100% natural
By using a softer, finer wool, we’ve created a lighter, all-weather Cape that’s trans-seasonal and fluid. On top of that, we’ve added sophisticated, monochromatic colours that match everything else you own. We call it an evolution.
We've kept the herringbone weave and replaced the colour blocks with a line as a design detail that hints at giving the Cape shape. Short, hand-trimmed fringes keep the overall look refined.Size + Fit + Materials

We want people to look and feel special when they wear a KARIGAR product. However, we also want to be gentle with our environment and make responsible choices at every step of our creation process, from sourcing the raw materials to ensuring that the water, post-dyeing, is disposed safely.
It takes a lot more than travelling to the source to create responsible fashion. We speak the subtle language of design translation and before every new crafting process, we train our artisan partners on what a beautiful product looks like in the eyes of an international customer.
The importance of standardisation, knowing international quality requirements and an eye for colour and detail are the skills that take them far for the rest of their working life.
