Shimmer Tote

$ 74.00 $ 37.00

Handmade in Nepal in communities where those with little or no education are at risk of being trafficked to other countries or enslaved in migrant worker schemes abroad. In addition to a fair wage, each artist is provided with an interest bearing retirement fund, a monthly stipend for employees who keep their children in school for 4 consecutive years, a medical allowance, and a Producer’s Alliance which protects and encourages knowledge of employee rights.
Handmade using natural cotton. With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
From ancient times, Nepal is known for its rich and diverse cultural heritage. Historically, two principal religions Buddhism and Hinduism have influenced the Nepalese culture heritage. The syncretic nature of Nepalese art and architecture symbolizes unity amongst various ethnic groups and promotes the spirit of unity.
