Kualesa started as a small seed of an idea, with a big ambition and an even bigger purpose. The brand has evolved from a simple set of values to a producer of great-looking and super comfortable bamboo apparel that’s challenging fast fashion.
After our founder, Ariff, left the corporate world, he discovered the damage synthetic fibers (the favored textile of the apparel industry) were doing to the environment. Only when he looked closely through his wardrobe did he realize how many 100% polyester pieces of clothing he had.
As an eco-conscious individual, his moral compass went into overdrive, and he dove headfirst into the world of sustainable textiles, which is when he discovered the functional applications of bamboo. After unearthing bamboo’s fantastic attributes, he knew he had found a way to build a company that did things a little differently and had a conscience of its own.
The first step was to convince his best friend, Haris, to join forces with him as a co-founder. Together, they then began developing a product that, first and foremost, their friends would love as they all had the same unsustainable 100% polyester wardrobe.
