The remarkable thing about these gloves is they are hand-crafted by a refugee woman from Bhutan. The home of Gross National Happiness, Bhutan ethnically cleansed an entire people from their country in the 90’s. Now America is home to several thousand refugees relocated by the U.N. from refugee camps in Nepal. They lived in Nepal camps with no running water or electricity for 20 years. They are known to say places like Oakland, an impoverished city, is like living in heaven. “Shangri-La.”
Our shop, Himalayas by Hand, provides Bhutanese refugee women with an opportunity to create their hand-knit products and sell online. They are taking an active stance against poverty and earning money for their children’s future or care of their parents. They profit directly from your fair trade purchase of their handiwork.
