Ecological Criteria



Takasa [origin Swahili – {verb} to purify, clean, cleanse, make bright] is a socially and environmentally responsible retail business, selling homewares that are organic, ethically sourced and manufactured using environmentally safe methods and free from harmful chemicals. We started Takasa with the goal of providing end-to-end organic, natural and clean lifestyle choices to mindful consumers. Based in Vancouver, BC – and with roots in India and Kenya – we manufacture Canada’s first Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Fairtrade Canada certified homewares. In addition to our organic and Fairtrade relationships, we are committed to giving back to the environment and reducing our carbon footprint through our donations to One Tree Planted. With a passion for exceptionally high quality materials and socially conscious manufacturing processes, we’re focused on combining thoughtfully designed premium products for those who value beauty, durability and sustainability.
