WildWeaves…natural fibres fairly traded
WildWeaves is an eco retailer with one foot in the UK and the other in Nepal. We are passionate about natural fibres – and fair trade.
At WildWeaves you can buy great natural fibre clothing, footwear, accessories, paper…loads of lovely things made from eco fibres like hemp, bamboo, giant stinging nettle (yes, you read that right!) wool and organic cotton.
We believe in using as many sustainably produced fibres and fabrics as possible in the creation of our goods. We mix and blend these lovely fibres into unusual textiles and finished products using both machine and hand looms.
And because we have our own workshop in Kathmandu we are able to design small runs of goods that we know our customers will love – many of which are entirely unique to WildWeaves.
When you buy from WildWeaves you can be sure that our products have been made ethically. All our goods are made either in our own workshop or in places where we know that working conditions and practices are sound. Our staff are paid fairly and work in good conditions.
Job creation in Nepal is really important to us. We have a great team of talented tailors, craftspeople and office staff. We want to grow the company so we can create more jobs in Nepal– another great reason to buy from WildWeaves.
