More About the Artisan...

MALA THAPA MAGAR is the founder and CEO of Himalayan Allo Udhyog (HAU), a company that produces nettle (also known as allo) fiber, fabrics, yarn, clothing and bags. Mala’s company indirectly employs more than 600 people, mostly women in remote villages in Nepal. While raising the standards of living of these women, the business has also helped raise awareness of the sustainability of nettle fiber. Himalayan nettle is a perennial plant that grows quickly and uses much less water than cotton and no pesticides. Women who work with Mala use the nettle to produce handmade throw pillows, crocheted bags, and more.
