Karunia Fischer was born, raised and educated in Bali. As a third-culture-kid to Swiss-Filipina parents, Karunia grew up encouraged to experiment, express, create, and above all, to be passionate about whatever she chose to do. Immersed in Balinese culture and inspired by local artisans, painters and her entrepreneurial family, Karunia began designing her own clothes while still in middle school. She then stepped away from Bali’s shores to study design at Rhode Island School of Design and then International Relations in the Netherlands. On her return from Europe she worked with a Hawaiian company to launch the swimwear line Noa Noa Hawaii, before branching out to create her own brand of sustainable clothing.
