Where it's made

Where it's made

Nepal is a small country the size of Tennessee sandwiched right between India and China. The White Yak Nepal is an ethical textiles & leather goods company in the valley of the tallest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas. Through hiring local Tibetans and Nepalis they provide economic stability to some of the most isolated people groups in the world. Every thread is hand-dyed, spun, and woven into beautiful pangdens, which indicate each weavers' distinct culture and every finished product is handcrafted in a small factory in Kathmandu.
How it's made

How it's made

The pangdens are designed, handwoven, and worn by the the women of each Tibetan ethnic group. Each pangden possesses distinct characteristics to communicate the woman's marital status and place of origin. Every pangden used in our products are directly purchased from the women who have handcrafted them. The leather is sourced from an ethical, fair wage tannery. The tannery goes above and beyond to create what is called "eco leather" which means he takes into account the environmental impacts of his tannery and works to minimize them.
