Know the story behind your product & you will enjoy and appreciate the use of the product much more! ANNA NERA only works with WFTO Fairtrade organisations. These enterprises transform local communities, pioneer upcycling, empower women and practice organic farming. Their impact goes far and wide. These are the enterprises of the new economy.
I travelled back in Nepal and Bangladesh to work and meet the women behind, and make a new and cool collection together. I try to capture the story behind the artisans to bring this closer to you ;-)
About Master in scarves
Beautiful scarves, handmade by a 4 years generation organisation. An incredible amount of experience and skills. Could you imagine? I don’t know where to look, how to begin, or what to choose. Sure, I got a design but then, what material, which weaving technic, screen printing or weave the details in it? Luckily the owner was so nice and patient and enthusiastic to talk to me through all the options. What a great way to make a product. Learned a lot from the master!
We made a wonderful collection of scarves together. Hopefully there will be a 5th generation or organisation who can continue with this beautiful Nepalese tradition. Namasté.
