What is a Shopify Theme? 🧐

Shopify themes are templates that online stores use to present and power their business, but essentially, a Shopify theme determines the way a store looks, feels and functions.

Shopify themes are built using Shopify's theme templating language (Liquid), alongside HTML, CSS, JavaScript and JSON.

Using these languages, skilled Shopify developers like us here at Karmoon can create any look and feel that our clients desire!

Just give us a bell and tell us the details so we can make the real magic happen for your business too.
