    Description

    Our women's organisation is a fair trade sewing collective based out of Kathmandu, Nepal. The business focuses on empowering and educating women with the intent to change the social and cultural norms in Nepal.

    The collective is comprised of women who are challenged by physical disability, come from abusive homes, are fleeing extreme poverty, or just looking to educate themselves to move forward in their lives.
