March 1, 2014 - I got the zebra and just LOVE it. Really large, very well-made, and just the most darling expression. Recommend highly -- I may buy the elephant as well.
February 4, 2014 - I want them all, but could only afford one, so i went for the Monkey...adorable. One way or another I want to get them all...zebras next..who wants to show me some love?
January 31, 2014 - I wanted to buy one of each, but practices restraint. I bought the monkey for my one year old granddaughter's birthday while saving the cute rabbit for Easter. I also bought the penguin for my sister who collects penguins. They were all adorable and well made. You can't beat the cost either!
March 9, 2013 - Absolutely love the dino and have already shared your site with a friend! Love, love, love!
December 11, 2012 - I purchased the frog, and he is just adorable. Great price for how big they are.
Artisan: Everest Fashion
Everest Fashion was established in 1996 as an economical development project with the aim of providing job opportunities for local female handicraft producers in Kathmandu, Nepal. Everest employs only women, and the steady wages they earn from their work helps them feed and clothe their families and send their children to school.
Nepal has few roads and is mostly connected by narrow trade routes and crisscrossing footpaths. Where the roads end, goods are carried on the backs of mules, dzos, yaks, or men and women. The difficulties of travel make it nearly impossible for individual artisans to make a living marketing and selling their wares outside of their local area. Everest helps their artisans reach national and international markets that were previously unavailable and provides customers with an ever-changing array of beautiful and unique handicrafts.
Everest is committed to using natural fibers as much as possible in their goods. Most products are made from renewable sources such as hemp, cotton, allo (a Himalayan nettle), wool and silk, and all products are made from local resources. In this way, they utilize the abundant local raw materials while providing job opportunities for hundreds of villagers.
