Environmental Impact

We are committed to minimising the impact on the environment in which we live. As we learn and grow as a company, we look for new ways to do so. You can feel comfortable knowing that your purchase has not come at the cost of the beautiful world in which we live.

Handmade

All of our products are made by hand and do not require the use electric or motorised machinery, minimising our carbon footprint. This is a big deal in Nepal, where electricity is scarce and diesel generators are common.

Materials

We love natural materials and use them exclusively! Our favourite of all is wool, nature’s amazing blend of performance and sustainability. Not only is it a renewable, biodegradable, recyclable resource, but it is also a functional and durable fibre that you can use for many years to come.

Dyeing

Dyeing is one of the biggest pollutants in the fashion industry. We are very careful which dyers we use. We visit their sites to ensure that only approved materials are being used and that there are proper filtering systems in place.

Packaging

One of the simplest ways we can care for our environment is by limiting the use of plastic and paper in our packaging and recycling waste. Whenever possible, we use local handmade Lokta paper for our hang tags and packaging. Lokta paper is one of the most environmentally sustainable papers. It is made from the bark of a fast-growing bush that grows in areas of the Himalayas not suitable for farming. Lokta paper is handmade and sundried and no machines are used in the process.
