NEPALI by TDM
If you ask any fashionista, or anyone who is really interested in fashion and apparel they will tell you that something handmade, hand sewn and essentially one of a kind is one of the best things that you can possibly get. Now, what could be even better than having something be one-of-a-kind? Well, what if it supports local industries in more developing countries?
That is exactly what NEPALI by TDM Design does. NEPALI by TDM Design creates ultra luxurious, classic, yet fun and trendy scarves and shawls all made from the highest quality fibers and hand made in the predominately female cottage industries within Nepal. NEPALI by TDM Designs brings the opportunity for sustainable income to Nepalese women and helps the weavers and their families to help escape the vicious circle of poverty by giving them above market compensation as well as access to health care and education.
NEPALI by TDM Design allows for the empowerment of the Nepalese women, their families and their communities. NEPALI strives to strengthen the role of women in today’s Nepal and educate their children as the country moves forward. By creating these opportunities for women to generate a solid and consistent income it is not only investing in the Nepal of the now, but the future of Nepal as well for it is helping to put these women’s children through school and funding quintessential healthcare services for the people of Nepal.
