WOVEN is a young brand inspired by the founder's mother Ramkali Khada and her work in WSDO (Women's Skill Development Organization). After working there for 10 years, the founder Anup made up his mind to start something that would help empower women as his mother did.
WOVEN aims to empower economically marginalized women by providing vocational skill training and job opportunities, supporting them to become self-supportive.
Furthermore, WOVEN aims to have a minimal negative impact on the local environment by using locally resourced materials as much as possible.
All of WOVEN products are handmade in Nepal. The cotton fabrics are sourced from the WSDO; while the nettle fabric comes from a women's cooperative in Salija Village.
Nowadays, WOVEN provides more than 25 job opportunities for women to hand assemble the bags from WSDO fabric and supports them to become self-sufficient.
