FAQ

How does my KARIGAR Cape go from Long to Short?

Want to do more with less? Create two very different yet special styles with a simple trick.
We call it The Flip.
When worn with a long back, the KARIGAR Cape looks like a jacket or dress. To turn it into a short vest, FLIP IT over 180 degrees so that the long back becomes the big warm shawl around your neck. You have a different colour and a new drape!

My Cape has a loop, how do I fix it?

Don’t you just hate it when your watch gets caught in your cape, pulling a loop?
You can repair or reduce the damage by looking at the direction of the pulled thread and stretching it back in place.
Hold your Cape about 10 cms either side of the loop and pull until you see the thread sitting back in place. That should help reduce the damage or repair it completely.

Will the Cape suit me?

Tall. Short. Blonde. Brunette. Dark. Fair. Old. Young. Petite. Plus.
There’s a Cape for all of us.
When we designed the KARIGAR Cape, we made it versatile so that every single woman can wrap herself up in pure, natural luxury without feeling limited.
One size, 10 colours. Which one is yours?

I’m short, will the cape suit me?

Why blend in when you can stand out?
At least not when you’re wearing the KARIGAR cape. Some of our KARIGAR customers are 165cm (and shorter) and they wear the cape with more shawl around the neck and with a shorter back. This drape is casual yet trendy and let’s them walk into any room feeling tall. Even without heels.

Why does my KARIGAR product have some irregularities?

Even on a good day most of us aren’t perfect. So why expect our handmade Capes, Scarves and Shawls to be any different?
15 skilled artisans craft one KARIGAR product, and because each piece is made entirely by hand, you can expect it to have just the right amount of human imperfection.
Weaving irregularities or tiny loops don’t make your product any less beautiful.
Only more unique.
