Manju Tamang is from Kavre district located south of Kathmandu. When Manju was in grade 6, she was diagnosed with typhoid which stopped her from continuing her studies. During the same period, she lost part of her hearing. After 12 years, with the support of her family and community members, she was assisted with a hearing device and could again develop her speaking and hearing. She has been with Hatti Hatti since May 2017. She wants to continue her studies and become an independent successful woman.
Orange is the new Black !
The orange color reflects empower. When you purchase this handmade bowtie you are empowering and supporting a woman!
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
