Artisan: Everest Fashion
Everest Fashion was established in 1996 as an economical development project with the aim of providing job opportunities for local female handicraft producers in Kathmandu, Nepal. Everest employs only women, and the steady wages they earn from their work helps them feed and clothe their families and send their children to school.
Nepal has few roads and is mostly connected by narrow trade routes and crisscrossing footpaths. Where the roads end, goods are carried on the backs of mules, dzos, yaks, or men and women. The difficulties of travel make it nearly impossible for individual artisans to make a living marketing and selling their wares outside of their local area. Everest helps their artisans reach national and international markets that were previously unavailable and provides customers with an ever-changing array of beautiful and unique handicrafts.
Everest is committed to using natural fibers as much as possible in their goods. Most products are made from renewable sources such as hemp, cotton, allo (a Himalayan nettle), wool and silk, and all products are made from local resources. In this way, they utilize the abundant local raw materials while providing job opportunities for hundreds of villagers.
