Inspiration

From the time I can remember, my eyes would always focus on fabric. While I’d notice what people were wearing, I’d get particularly fascinated by the way people would decorate their homes and feel inspired by seeing how their space reflected their culture, their travels and in turn, their lives.

This eye for detail and design stemmed from the passion I saw my mother exude towards textiles. Since childhood, I was surrounded by bountiful beautiful fabrics that my Mom would use to create designs, many of which she’d bring back from her travels around the world.

I was lucky that as I got older, I got to join my mother on these adventures and while spending time seeing the world, I got an inside look at what inspires people globally. I also realized that the fabrics I was so accustomed to sleeping on were universally regarded as fitting a certain lifestyle. What that lifestyle meant became the source of my personal investigation and resulted in my lifelong inspiration.

My passion for designing a space that gives us the time, the energy, the focus and the creativity needed to be able to receive everything that life has to offer each day is now what drives me and that is La Kairos.

Earlier on, when you bought something it would last you a lifetime because its quality and workmanship was just ‘on-point’, where you would hand down those special pieces on to the next generation. I wanted to create the same level of products and tell stories through them whilst keeping the hand artistry and sustainability as my focus.

I created La Kairos to inspire and enable people to live and rest in comfort, with luxury. Just how my mother inspired me, I would like to inspire the world…
