We like to think of the results as a masterpiece, like a piece of art that can evoke a special feeling, which has to be experienced to be believed.
Kharma, it's all in the name
The name Kharma is derived from the wisdom that all positive energy you put into the world, will eventually come back to you. It is like one of Newton’s laws of physics, every action has its equal and opposite reaction. With this in mind, we design, engineer and produce Kharma products every day.
