New Brand Alert: Warm Me
We have a new brand at the boutique that will add some sparkle and fun to your winter wear. It's time to swap our sun hats for beanies so let us introduce you to WARM ME. Handmade from the finest Nepalese cashmere with designs to suit and urban style. Since the beginning, the brand have made their hats in the heart of Kathmandu, working with the local artisans of Nepal, who have a long lasting history for traditional hand knitting and weaving.
Their mission is to act socially responsible, creating in a sustainable way so that the consumer doesn't have to choose between design and social responsibility. "When we were looking for our production, we wanted to make sure that the facilities were supporting the local population and that there is a proper value creation already at that stage. We wanted to guarantee that the production facilities and their workers are well-compensated and the workers are living close to the production site."
After nine years working in the industry, they have created 60 jobs with a regular and fair income for the locals of Nepal. In 2015, their close working relationship grew stronger after the devastating earthquake and working with and helping the manufacturers felt more important to the brand than ever. "WARM ME has always backed charitable projects in the country, but it started making even more significant contributions after the aforementioned catastrophe by organising coordinated relief programmes. We are not interested in short term activities, but in profoundly growing the economy over time."
To date, WARM ME have sold more than 50,000 beanies around the globe and have stated how humbled and grateful they are to have so many people love their unique blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern, eye-catching designs. WARM ME is not simply about keeping you cosy and warm - it's about making you look and feel good too. The latest collection will be online very soon and is available in store now.
