Authenticity Is The New Luxury
Posted on 14 August 2014
In nine days, I'm heading back to Kathmandu, Nepal to continue a project that I started three years ago: studying the rise, fall, and slow revival of Nepal's local cashmere industry. While living in Kathmandu, I tracked down and explored a few of the remaining knitting & weaving factories where spun wool from Himalayan goats is carefully crafted into garments, blankets, and accessories. During this upcoming trip, I will revisit these manufacturers with new Skida headwear designs and return with a new product line in the works!
The research has been done - now it's time to get down to business.
Coming soon: Skida Cashmere. Made locally in Nepal.
