All fibres are hand spun by Nepalese women in their home villages and woven by Bangladeshi weavers using traditional pedal looms. GCHANDMADE only use eco-friendly dyes from Switzerland.

GCHANDMADE’s buyers are predominantly high-end brands requiring hand woven textiles for scarves, shawls and throws.

Ethical Focus & Policy

GCHANDMADE support women from small villages, enabling them to earn income so as to care for their families and input into their local communities.

By supporting these women financially, GCHANDMADE minimise the costs of travelling, paying wages much higher than the minimum national wage and contribute to the cost of the children’s schools fees. They also encourage traditional hand spinning skills which is common among Nepalis women.

GCHANDMADE also works with other companies to promote “Slow Fashion” by producing ageless accessories that do not follow fast fashion trends. The aim is that the accessories become an indispensable item of one’s wardrobe.

GCHANDMADE aim to educate the customers to understand that the beauty of the handmade is in its inaccuracy and the impossibility to have two pieces identical.
