Hey everyone

The non-profit I volunteer with recently wrote a blog post covering some of the issues with fast-fashion while taking a minute to highlight some of the brands that are actually doing some good! Have a look at the link below and please feel free to share it around!

Munsiyari is a small town in the Central Himalayas, in Kumaon. Until about fifteen years ago it was an important centre of pashmina shawl weaving. Not anymore!
Traditionally, Bhotia traders brought raw pashmina from Tibet into Pithoragarh, via the Lipolekh pass.. From there it was bought by people from Munsiyari, who cleaned, de-haired, hand-spun and wove it into shawls. This was a thriving cottage industry, providing income to hundreds of people. And it kept the craft going.
Recently, a number of mechanized pashmina yarn making plants have been set up in Delhi and Ludhiana. They require large amounts of pashmina and buy almost everything brought into Pithoragarh from Tibet; very little is available to small traders from Munsiyari. Sadly,only a handful of weavers there are now working with pashmina.
Three years ago I visited one of them: Mrs. Daimanti in Dankot village. This is the loom she uses for pashmina shawl weaving. Others have taken to collecting yarsagumba (kida jadi) which fetches ridiculously high price in China and other east Asian countries as an aphrodisiac . But more on this ecologically disastrous activity some other time! www.himalayanweavers.org
