Nettle grows wild in Nepal, and the entire process, from growing to harvesting, weaving, and finishing these products is done by hand, bringing a boost to the local economy. After making the thread from wild nettle, we wash it multiple times before weaving it into fabric using our traditional, hand-operated 100-year-old loom which uses no electricity. The fabric is then cut and sewn to create these durable wallets. Only natural dyes are used in this product.
Local Women’s Handicrafts is a fair trade textiles and handicrafts collective based in Kathmandu. All of our products are handmade and ethically produced, providing fair wages and safe working conditions for the local Nepalese women who make them. We seek to empower and educate disadvantaged women by providing them with training and skills to support themselves.
Our organization is working hard to eradicate sweatshop problems as soon as possible. Everyday, lives are lost due to this unnecessary suffering.
By buying our products, you’re not just purchasing beautiful, handmade, and unique items, you’re also helping us educate women with skills that will allow them to support themselves and work in a happy and healthy environment.
Due to the fact that the products are handmade from ecological and robust materials, we recommend that you wash the products with cold or tepid water and allow them to dry flat. All our products are crafted with a love for craft and tradition, which makes each product truly unique. The products may differ slightly from the products on the product images with regard to color, size or pattern.
