Locally known as Dhakas, these gorgeous fabrics are hand-loomed by traditional Nepalese women using very thin cotton threads. Each Dhaka is woven together with thousands of them, averaging more than 50 per meticulous inch. The process is not just laborious, but requires detailed calculations and planning to achieve accurate thread counts and properly executed designs.
With every Dhaka you purchase, you are supporting women and families from impoverished areas of Nepal through our partnership with Namlo International. The traditional craft of hand-looming requires incredible skill and ongoing training, both of which Namlo provides at no cost to these individuals. By teaching women to produce traditional Nepali handicrafts, Namlo is helping people and families earn much needed income and economic support for their communities.
