Our Story

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.
