Aashu is from Chitwan located south of Kathmandu. She grew up in a farming family. After she finished her ninth year in school, Aashu moved to Kathmandu to do six months of tailoring training at UCEP (Underprivileged Children’s Educational Program). Before joining HATTI HATTI Aashu worked at a garment factory producing towels for a very low salary. She likes to spend time with her friends and explore new places but dislike when people start fights. She has been with Hatti Hatti since November 2015. She too has an aim to become independent, strong and own a tailoring shop.
The cute looking HattiHatti printed bag is a comfortable carry and goes with all your outfit.
Women in Nepal have a special relationship with their ‘saari’, which can be compared to a ball gown. Most women own several of these and every single one reflects a special memory.
The saari is often only used once, for one event and after they are hung up and displaced in wardrobe, never to be used again.
We think this is a real shame, that something so beautiful and special is no longer able to be enjoyed by other people and is almost forgotten. We want in some way, to preserve these memories and special dresses, by creating something new and useful from them.
With the help of women in marginalized communities, without education and profession, we recycle donated saari’s into beautiful kimonos, bowties, neckties, dresses. These beautiful fabrics and memories will be interwoven and shown in a new life. Our vision is to create work opportunities for these women with an end result of a product they will feel proud of creating.
THAT IS WHY THIS IS MUCH MORE THAN ONLY A PRODUCT
