The leather is ethically sourced from the Sarki community in Sindhupalchowk village, near the Tibet border. The Sarki people are a marginalised ethnic caste of people whose traditional leathersmith trade of shoes, farming harnesses has severely diminished due to modern fabric alternatives. The leather is tanned organically using the leaves and bark of the local,sustainable 'Dhairo' bush. 

Handmade with love by the skilled artisans of the Women's Skill Development Organisation providing opportunities, training and support to disadvantaged women in Nepal.
