How We Produce
We are sewing our bags with our team of incredible women in Kathmandu, Nepal. When we need to speed up our production, we get the help of homebased women and a small family-run enterprise.
Our stunning Dhaka fabrics are handwoven! Dhaka fabric has a long and important history in Nepal and was mostly used for Dhaka Topis (traditional men’s hats). We mainly weave our dhaka with a women empowerment group which works with homebased workers and a small-scale women’s enterprise in the west of Nepal.
The buckles for our bags and bowties are all handcrafted by different artisans in Kathmandu. Each triad of buckles, handcrafted for each bow tie, is cut with a manual handsaw, polished with a little file, hammered flat, and then polished again. Our jewelry is done by women working from home along with talented artisans.
Our knitting and crochet products are produced by a Patan-based, women empowerment organization, which works with homebased artisans in the area.
Our soaps are produced by a small social enterprise training centre outside of Kathmandu which works with local, smallholder farmers to cultivate organically- grown herbs used to create our natural and ethically-sourced plant-based skincare products.We are working to present you each individual who we work with. We will, over time, continue adding these humans to our website.
