At the most inhospitable place on the planet, local communities have learned to observe and listen to the wise advice of the earth, enabling them to coexist peacefully with their natural environment.
The world doesn't belong to us, we are just one more species of billion others, we are sharing it. We need to be conscious.
Dare to see the world with different eyes, to inspire others and to capture our natures beauty. Now you can see that it is possible to live in harmony with the environment.
The wilderness of Patagonia has shaped the way we see the world; it has inspired us to see beyond the obvious and taken us to reflect upon our essence as human beings.
With Karün you are part of this change.

- I see the world from a different point of view.
Our design Philosophy is not based on inventing new stuff, but in observing and learning from our planet.
Nature is the greatest teacher and inventor.
We know we are not perfect, but we want to make sure that we contribute as much as we can in everything we do.
We work locally with what nature has to offer and with what we humans have discarded.
Changing the way the production processes in hard goods work is not an easy task. We are committed to substantially change the way businesses operate in every aspect of the business, yet we are conscious that it is an ongoing process in which we need to advance step by step. We know we are not perfect and there is still much to improve, but we are making sure we are being as responsible as it is possible in every step of our production process.
Our raw materials are sourced in Chile. Our production is done in one of the finest factories in Italy. Conscious of the transportation consequences on the environment, we plan it as responsibly as we can, continuously improving our ways of working. To minimize carbon footprint during transportation, raw materials are reduced in size and volume and shipping methods are responsibly selected.
We want to make products that last a lifetime so that we can reduce consumption. Most of our manufacturing is made in Italy with our long-term partners in factories that ensure excellent working conditions for their employees and that are actively working with their own local communities and in the protection of their natural surroundings; The factory is even located just outside a national park!
We are currently working on a collaboration with two other B Corps to create a unique programme that can empower rural entrepreneurs while helping them to recycle their wastes and fund their own sustainable entrepreneurships in a way that this is integrated into our supply chain.
We don't consider ourselves to be just a company.
Companies are nothing more than the sum of the people in it and the common dream they share.
Everything we do is a reflection of the dream of a great group of people sharing similar values and way of life. We are working as hard as we can to prove through example that we can change the way we interact with ourselves and our planet. Love is what guides us in every decision and we are committed to work through collaboration, empathy and transparency in everything we do.
