                                        KOLOR KATHMANDU 

 We just love how the Street Art scene

 in Nepal, and especially in Kathmandu were we live,

 is blossoming these days.

 The people behind "Kolor Kathmandu" want to transform

Kathmandu into a colorful open gallery space 
& make 
Kathmandu a place with art for the people,
 by the people.

Keep up the good work! We love it!

                              MANY DROPS MAKES MIGHTY OCEAN

Living in Nepal, one of the poorest countries

 in the world, 

everyday it makes us realize not only how

 fortunate we are to be Norwegians,

 but also how many we would love to help

if we had the assets.

When we think of the things we do trough


 and our "Give Back" project to Maya Universe Academy,

 it makes it a little bit easier not to be

able to help everyone in need...

                                                FACTORY GIRLS 

Yesterday we visited a potential new supplier/ factory here in Kathmandu. They make BEAUTIFUL superlight shawls in cashmere, silk & linen. The best thing with their cashmere products is that they are dyed with natural vegetable dyes! Big Eco Plus Point (:

Something you would be interested in for SS2014? 

It only works 15 women at this factory nowadays as they've been forced to downsize their production unit due political instability within Nepal and demands from the western market to keep prizes down while still expecting the same quality or even better quality then before.   

When we visit potential suppliers we always have a list of questions to the management as f.ex the workers working conditions; work hours, salary, overtime payments etc. 

The manager at this particular factory told us that they pay the women only 6200 Nepali rupies a month ( about75 US$ ) which is a bit more then nepali minimum wage, but still at the lowest end of the estimated minimum living wage.

Knowing this we have to ask ourselves: 

If we place and order at this factory and start a collaboration that can bring fruits for both parties in the future? 

Can we bring steady business to this unit so the workers salaries can have a steady increase in the future?

Numbers from Norway shows that the price level for clothes is pretty much the same today as in the late 1980's. 
No wonder that is still possible when some workers in the manufacturing countries earn next to nothing....Let's do something about it together?
