Empowering One Woman At A Time

Welcome to Local Women's Handicrafts. We’re a fair trade, eco-conscious collective of women who create unique fashion and decor in Nepal. Our mission is to help empower and educate women, enabling them to write their own destiny. We provide a safe space for women who have escaped abusive practices in the textile industry and other injustices in their local communities. Our manufacturing facilities allow these women to learn new skills and crafts as a group to help heal and rehabilitate their spirits. Through raising awareness and making fashion in an ethical way, our goal is to end childhood slavery, forced marriage, and other injustices against women.

About Us

    We grow and harvest raw materials locally and we recycle discarded materials, using 100-year-old looms to weave the textiles and using sustainable production to support
    a locally based economy.

  • Ethical

    We’re working towards bringing an end to fast fashion, freeing women from sweatshops, and protecting Mother Earth. Handcrafted with love by women coming together to change the fashion industry. We’re committed to giving supply chain transparency
