Cotton and wool blanket measuring 34″ wide X 81″ long. Assorted colors and stripe patterns.
Ganesh Himal Trading is thrilled to begin a new partnership with a women’s cooperative in the southern village of Surket, Nepal. Each throw is 30% cotton and 70% wool, providing a very soft, cozy feel. This group is just beginning to dye their own threads so each item varies just slightly from the next.
“Our women are inspiring the next generation by showing them that an education is the best way to break down social and economic barriers. Our women are working to ensure their own girls are educated, which reduces the risk of exploitation, encourages delayed childbirth, and ultimately leads to a more skilled and productive labor force in the community.
The Kopila Valley Women’s Center has been in operation for 3 years, The center involves a training center that teaches empowerment skills, life skills, basic education, and job skills,
When the women graduate they can join the Cooperative, which was set up to support and develop local women and the graduates of our training program. The Koplia Valley Women’s Co Operative started in July 2017 and is a self run co operative. It’s vision is to include women from training courses as well as local women who have a dream.”
