    Background

    The fabric is handwoven from a mixture of high-quality local Nepali cotton and acryl in a fair trade project. Why choose local over materials produced in countries like India or Bangladesh? We started a factory in Nepal to maximise our social-economic impact in one of the poorest countries in the world. Buying local fabric increases our impact. Especially after recent earthquakes the Nepali community and textile industry can use the extra work and income.
