A FAIRTRADE CO-OPERATIVE IN NEPAL
Our hand-knitted jumpers are real signature BIBICO garments and we could not create them without the skill and expertise of a fantastic group of artisans in Nepal. This workforce, mainly of women, are supported by a non-profit, Fair Trade co-operative that we have proudly partnered with for twelve years. Many of these women are able to work from home, often on a very small scale. In this way, they can also look after their families.
The co-operative was created by UNICEF in 1989 to promote Nepalese handicrafts and is a member of the WFTO. We have visited Nepal on many occasions to see the work that goes on for ourselves. These women are highly skilled artisans and each garment they create is exceptional. It is a real privilege to be partnered with them.
