The Tibetat Collection Meaning
Protectors are also Purifiers, we combine Mahakala (Bhairav in Hinduism) with water elements or fire elements. Nagas, or Tibetan Dragons, are powerful protectors who can control the weather and fight negative spirits. Tantric spirit protectors guard against malign ghosts and the Tibetan Garden is a blissful place to mediate and centre yourself.
For one shawl, the felting process takes four women seven to eight hours and the total production time is more than 20 hours.
Ethical Women’s Cooperative in Kathmandu
All of our felting products are made by an ethical women’s cooperative in Kathmandu. With over five hundred female staff, the factory is one of the most inspiring and pleasant places you could ever want to visit. Picnic areas, free child and adult education, and open, airy production work-spaces are full of lively chatter and happy smiles.
