Chameli Dangol
Chameli Dangol, Maker

We’re pleased to introduce you to two of our amazing female artisans who have been making our products since the beginning.

We’ve been working with these ladies and their equally inspiring colleagues for nearly two years now.

We sat down with Chameli Dangol and Anita Maharjan to gain some perspective on their daily lives and what working with a fair trade collective means to them.

Krishna & Yujen Maharajan, Owners

For our artisans, a salary is so much more than a wage.

It empowers them, gives them a sense of dignity and purpose and gives them freedom to be independent of the men in their lives.

They always greet us with big, enthusiastic smiles and are happy and proud that we value them and their handicraft traditions.




We’re ready to take Kathmandu Yogi to the next level

Bishnu Devi, Maker

In just 10-days we will be launching our first ever Kickstarter campaign on May 1st.

It is our hope to raise enough capital to create sustainable employment for 100 Nepali women.

Creating sustainable jobs for three new fair trade collectives, that employ incredible women just like Chameli and Anita.

Together we can make an impact with the potential to transform lives.
