HimalYAYas, a new Nepal tote has arrived!

In 2018, Traveler Taylor moved to Chitwan, Nepal.

While living in Nepal, Taylor has gathered some awesome fabrics for us to turn into totes. Believe it or not, this is Taylor’s ninth Nepal tote...and it may just be the best one yet! Click the image or button below to see a special message from Taylor. #thinkglobalactlocal 

 

Taylor’s totes have done a whole lot of good by providing microloans to some very awesome Nepalis.

From Ramita, who used her loan to grow her mushroom farming business. Fun fact about Ramita: She started her business when she was 20 years old!

To Mira, who runs a pasal (a small grocery store) in the Kathmandu Valley. She used her loan to buy more inventory and have more products to sell.

To Kusum, who used her loan to buy raw materials for her shoe making business.

Here’s to a nice Friday nap and getting some much needed Eve-rest & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

There are 4 types of Hmong people that live in this area. The Red Hmong, Black Hmong, Green Hmong and the Flower Hmong tribes. We visited a very remote region that is dominated by the Flower Hmong people and we explored the Bac Ha market which is rarely seen by outsiders.
