MEET THE DESIGNER
A long established designer of all things cashmere, after working in the fashion Industry in Europe and India, Sian ventured to Nepal armed with a folder of designs and strong ideas about how she thought her own brand should look, fit, feel and function.
Sian only works directly with local suppliers and has turned her dream of a cashmere brand into reality.
A sustainable and socially responsible business practice is in place by working with a small team of family businesses who believe in craftsmanship and quality, but not at the expense of the environment or their workforce. They use AZO-free dyes from Switzerland. Their small workplaces are mainly staffed by women whose specialised skills give them the independence to earn a decent wage.
It's more than 10 years since that first trip to Kathmandu, the world is a different place now, so fewer airmiles means that Sian is happy to hang out in her hometown of Dublin and embrace the Irish weather with a stack of cashmere knitwear and scarves at the ever ready for her loyal local clients and those shoppers from further afield.
OUR BRAND ETHOS
We believe in quality and tradition. By choosing to craft our designs in Nepal we only work with artisanal makers who have honed their skills through generations.
Our crafts people produce limited edition collections designed by Sian using age old techniques and the finest quality cashmere.
Supporting women is central to our business and we work with small family run businesses which are active in giving back to their communities with local based charity projects.
