Nasjola bag, handcrafted by Local Women for Sunrise Pashmina

Empar is wearing a modal shawl, VIS #910.

The Nasjola is our first product marketed collaboratively by Sunrise Pashmina and Local Women's Handicrafts (LWH), a non-profit located in Thamel, Kathmandu. It is [sort of] named for Nasreen Sheikh, a brilliant young social activist and entrepreneur who rebelled against the traditional arranged marriage that her parents had in mind and is now helping disadvantaged women take control of their own lives by training them to design and produce a range of distinctively Nepalese accessories. (Read the article about Nasreen in Forbes Magazine!)

Before we commit ourselves to a larger venture with LWH, we are offering a small number of these bags at $19.50, which is close to what we paid for them, including shipping to the States. You could get them a bit cheaper at Nasreen's store, but not much ... certainly not enough to cover your travel expenses.

Please note, however, that we have an $85 minimum purchase policy, so we are hoping you will decide to purchase one or more shawls to stuff into this yummy bag.
