Kolka is Dora. This is a true reflection of her values, her ethics, her views on life and happiness. She blends these dew drops into her fabrics to create a place call home. Kolka also keeps the hopes and dreams of the artisans in the village of Rajasthan alive.
I have seen Dora making multiple trips to India in quest for perfection. She definitely does not do things in halves. Her home is a testament of Kolka. It’s a living breathing ‘Home and Garden’ home. One must visit to see how she has brought Kolka to life.
I was not aware of Kolka’s contribution towards the education for the needy. Well done you! So proud of you. Keep up the good work.

"Kolka revives what is seemingly getting lost today. While the world adopts modern designs, kolka brings back the opulence that was once displayed across darbaans and palaces of India. The products are gentle to touch and pleasing to the eye. The unique handcrafted designs would add a touch of luxury to any household".

A well written article and profound insight into the Kolka brand. It is great to see that the founder is an avid believer in sustainability and advocate of ethical business. There is a chapter being re written in the lives of children underprivileged and disadvantaged by poverty and competition. Kudos and continue the positive change. It is necessary and a responsibility. Well done, Dora.

This article is a great example of some of the more ethical and socially conscious operating business models. What a mashing insight into the world of ethical business ethos and demonstrable social impact.
The core essence of Kolka is sustainability and the framework is fairness and social responsibility. It is very refreshing that revival of artistic integrity of less fortunate groups in remote part of India are given a platform. This is not about profitability or mass production – this is stand against industrial irresponsibility towards the future of its nation.This is about operating fairly, responsibly and maintaining high standards of conduct. Admirable and should be supported and as the publisher states – advocated.

"Thank you kolka for making my dreary living room come to life. Love the beautiful colours and the fabric is awesome. Especially love the silk cushions! Thanks Dora for the excellent customer service, you not only ordered the design I wanted so quickly, which wasn't in stock, but also delivered it to me in person. I will definitely look forward to having more kolka beauties adorn my home."

"The cushions are so comfortable and go perfectly with our couch. They are far nicer than the standard ones that came with it, and the lovely shade of green adds a bit of colour and personality to the lounge. Great price too! Definitely recommend."

"I love my Kolka quilt. The quality is very good with a beautiful design. to match I love the fact that it covers my king-sized bed with heaps of room to spare. it is great as a light cover in summer or for added extra warmth during the colder months. It washes so well in the washing machine that it has kept it shape, feel and colour. I have bought presents for friends and family and they have loved their cushions, serviettes and (sorry Dora, I can't remember what the other thing was!!). I highly recommend Kolka to you if you are thinking of buying something, do it, you won't regret it!"

"I liked the Kolka table cloth because it is hand block print and is 100% cotton, it has a beautiful design and goes perfectly well with my furniture and walls. Have a peek at the collection on their website. Its worth it."
