Mandu Jewerly is a handpicked collection of metal and brass earrings & other accessories. All pieces are handmade and carefully designed.
The selections we’ve gathered hold to a strong value of empowering female entrepreneurs, the products are made by various maker-groups in Nepal, all of which have a Fair Trade NGO base. By this collection we hope to give a voice to the amazing local talent & skillful makers that are often under threat from mass production.
In many cases these organisations are focused on creating jobs for in Nepal especially for women with poor employment opportunities. The NGO´s run education projects in villages all around Nepal, making sure that more and more people can have skills that give them a good and solid opportunity to earn a living.
Many of the artisans work at home and that gives often better opportunities for workers to be able to accept the offered job. Womens position in Nepal is weak and having a job outside home is often not possible for them. By providing a job that can be done at home, women get to earn something by themselves and that gives them more power over their and their childrens lives.
