Mothers with young children form their own ‘childcare’ system wherein they bring the children to work with them! The children can play together safely under the watchful eyes of their own mothers.
In contrast to workers elsewhere our staff works only from 9-5 with regular breaks and lunch hour. We also provide maternity leave and sick pay. Basically, we like to think that we have introduced western working conditions as far as is humanly possible, whilst still respecting traditional Nepalese culture.
Currently we are introducing the use of natural, vegetable dyes and are constantly striving to source our materials in an ecologically sound way. We are continually upgrading our machinery therefore making the manual work both easier and safer for our employees.
