Our Story 

We're Camila and Trevor. We started Kala Home with a desire to pursue more meaningful work where our values are inherent in our everyday. 

Inspired by our travels, Camila's Colombian heritage, the grounding nature of traditional craft, and a love for relaxed and laid back design, we sought out to create Kala Home. We envisioned a marketplace, where real connections are made between maker and consumer, and where the origin, the maker, and the materials of a product are celebrated. 

In 2018, Camila travelled to Guatemala and Mexico to meet our first artisan partners. This labour of love has transitioned and evolved over the years and we have since introduced artisan, and responsible brand partners from across the globe.

From our home-studio, Kala Home has been our passion side project. Our dream is to one day soon have this be our full-time endeavour. 

Thank you for coming along on our adventure, for choosing to live mindfully, and for taking the time to appreciate the beauty that is all around us.
