Description + Story

Madhav Pandey finished his Master in Public Health in Nepal and could not find a job. Instead of leaving the country, he decided to invest in his village. He started Colours Handicraft together with his wife to employ the women in his village. He runs the factory and she runs a little shop they have in the tourist section of Kathmandu.

Felt is the oldest known textile in the world. Extremely durable and water-resistant, it was once used for clothing and shelter. Nepal boasts some of the finest felt workers in the world. We love partnering with Colours -- their energy is contagious and their commitment to local employment, particularly at-risk women is a model MULXIPLY's mission aligns with.
