Kam Ce Kam

Kam Ce Kam is a furniture and interiors brand born from a passion for innovative design conceived through traditional methods of manufacturing.

From the material to the making, the story is one of passion and integrity, coupled with a genuine desire to revive the heritage of Indian craft; in a considered, conscious and contemporary manner.

Creative director of the brand and designer of the launch collection, Jehanara Knowles, grew up between New Delhi and London, fuelling her passion for the fusion of tradition in her early years.

“Kam Ce Kam translates to ‘At the very least’ in Hindi and this has become the brand’s philosophy: ‘At the very least’ we encourage people to acquaint themselves with crafts rooted in the history of traditional culture by creating designs that relate to their every-day living.”

The furniture and accessories are all inspired by a component of traditional craft whilst telling the story of the maker and the materials used. Beginning with the skilled history behind the artisan, the designs incorporate age-old techniques such as cane weaving and stone carving. It continues onto the materials where timber, stone, leather and cane are organically fused with seat pads filled with coir and table-tops created from marble offcuts.

A conscious drive to utilise natural and sustainably sourced materials to create the furniture and accessories, lies at the heart of Kam Ce Kam’s production. Visually, the pieces respond to pieces seen in the colonial era, adapted to suit today’s contemporary lifestyle. It is a perfect medley of the cultures of India and Britain, being brought to life in the 21st century.

Showcasing craft and techniques that have evolved over time, the Kam Ce Kam design ethos represents a new style of craft for today’s generation. Constantly striving for timeless beauty and quality that is born out of a desire for tradition and innovation, these pieces hold within them stories dating back generations and are designed and made to last for generations to come.
