About the sweater-set
These sweaters are made from very soft organic cotton and have a regular fit.
This item is produced in our own factory in Kathmandu (Nepal). The fabric is GOTS certified and made from a hiqh quality organic cotton. Why choose organic over conventional fabrics? The conventional materials are treated with toxic pesticides and chemicals harmful to people and planet. For the growth of organic cotton and hemp no chemical fertilizers are needed and less water is used. Also, it is safe for people working with the (raw) materials and healthier for your skin.
Washing Instructions: machine wash at 30°C, do not tumble dry.

For the designers, people working in the factory and everyone wearing and using the products. The handshake inside each garment introduces you to the Nepali tailor who made it.
