  • Descripción


    Hi, our organization is a small unit which was started by me for the upliftment of local people and utilizing locally procured wool. My wife and me had started this project in 1993 and now our two sons are helping us develop it further. We are working together for strengthening and building up the Traditional Knowledge System.
    We are a sustainable and fashionable brand that focuses on winter wear as it is located in the Indian Himalayas in the beautiful Kullu valley along river Beas in Himachal Pradesh. We are working with local men and women using ages old traditional techniques for knitting and weaving.
    We have both Indian and Foreign clients and we aim to work with various kind of wool for apparel as well as home furnishing. We use techniques like Hand Spinning, Hand Knitting, Hand Weaving & Vegetable Dyes.
    We have a total of 45 people working here
    28 women who are mostly doing spinning, knitting, crochet etc
    11 men working on traditional handlooms
    6 men working on wool and finishing the final product
