In 2007, I left my lucrative and secure healthcare career and stepped off into the unknown world of graduate school at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service. During my international public service project with an organization in Nepal, I became inspired by the country and its artisans.
The summer following my graduation, I returned to Nepal for a four month stay working side-by-side with the women artisans in the Kathmandu Valley. Together, we designed our signature product, the felted vintage sari scarf, and other designs for the global marketplace.
As our relationships in Nepal grow and deepen through the years, our designs continue to evolve. Come shop with us and see what we’ve designed or discovered in this small South Asian country halfway around the world!
