A cashmere winter – sustainable luxury
Ohhh my – times is moving too fast – I can’t believe it has been so long since I last posted!
Well heres an update: Our small sustainable brand are doing fine 🙂 We are now presented in more than 20 shops in Denmark, and it is time to start selling our unique products in the rest of Scandinavia and Germany …and perhaps Canada and United States if luck is on our side 🙂
During the past months we have faced a lot of challenges: It is very expensive to drive this business, and even with 20 shops we do not make a profit – so from 1.st of January i will be the only full time employee again and I will try to work with agents and freelancers to meet this challenges. Off cause Amalie will stay as a student worker! In Nepal we face a lot of competition on cashmere products – and theres a lot of cheating with qualities from the yarn suppliers – so we need certificates on all raw material, and this takes time and focus from other activities. Last but not least the Danish government has changed the aid to developing countries – so Danida projects (as we have been approved as) is stopped, and none know when they will start again – this is a huge risk to our further work in Nepal.
On the bright side we have more and more great customers both private and shops – the work we have been doing in Kathmandu for the past years is working, and the products we sell are in perfect shape – both regarding design, quality and finishing – this is great news!
Well I hope you my dear wordpress friends are doing fine, and I hope you like some of the pictures i put below – as you know I like pictures more than words 🙂
