Production

  • After collecting the hemp from local farmers it is weaved before it's used by the rural Himalayan tailoring units to make durable textile products
  • Patchwork products are made by the cluster of tailoring units in the rural Himalayan community
  • Wool products are hand knitted by local home workers in the community
