Who made your scarf?
LWH (Local Women’s Handicraft) is a textile and handicraft collective in Nepal founded by Nasreen Sheikh, a former sweatshop child laborer. LWH works to empower disadvantaged and marginalized women through education and training. During a period of 6-18 months, the women are offered a safe place to stay, a stipend and an opportunity to learn a skill such as weaving, embroidery or jewelry making. These are the women who make the scarves.
The entire production process from dying of the yarn to weaving of the scarves is in the hands of LWH, and you can therefore rest assured that the making of the scarves is free from child labor, slave labor and sweat shops. The scarves are made with respect for the environment in safe working conditions, and the women are paid a fair salary. Each scarf comes with a photo of the woman who have made the scarf, and you can read the individual women’s stories on LWH’s website.
