In the mountainous region of Nepal, knitting hats, gloves, and sweaters has been a timeless pastime to keep children warm during the long winters. Country folk live a simple life based on the traditions and beliefs of their ancestors. Inspired by indigenous motifs and crafts that have existed for generations in the Himalayan region, our goal is to keep the tradition alive and re-craft them through our knitting communities.At Padhma Knits we believe incorporating a ‘giving component’ into our products adds a deeper level of human association. By combining women’s empowerment, skill development, economic freedom, and education, our product is a fusion of philanthropy and beautiful handiwork by artisans.
