20: Kantala

Cultivating intimate conversations with entrepreneurs, reflecting on the heartbeat of their organization.

In this episode we are joined by Vikum Rajapakse and Nadishan Shanthikumar from Kantala – a Sri Lankan based sustainable brand that makes vegan bags & accessories. We’ll hear about what led them to start the brand; their commitment to providing a sustainable livelihood not just for their artisan producers, but the producers household; the challenges they have faced alongside their accomplishments; and how they would like to be remembered for creating a business that can be good for the planet while inspiring people in the supply chain and customers too.
