$48.00

$38.00

*Final Sale

Handknit by widowed women in Nepal, the natural Fingerless Gloves from the Bootstrap Project are the winter accessory you can use inside or out. With clean lines and thick cashmere, these gloves are cosy and chic. Nepal has been a source of cashmere for thousands of years, where mountain goats survive the harsh environment of Himalayans by growing a thick coat of the renowned wool. The Bootstrap Project partnered with a women’s development organization in Bakhtapur, Nepal, where widowed women were provided with a means to pridefully sustain their families.

In Bakhtapur, Nepal, amid the golden temples, colorful prayer flags and the soaring Himalayan mountains, mountain goats are roaming and on their backs the best cashmere is grown. Cashmere has been used in Nepal for thousands of years. The icy temperatures that engulf the high peaks of the Himalayas create the perfect condition for the beautiful Himalayan mountain goat to roam. To survive these grueling conditions, these fluffy goats grow a soft inner coat, which is used to create the cashmere for this collection. The wool is then locally dyed in single batches and delivered to our master knitters of Bakhtapur to be hand-knit into our timeless gloves and hats.

The women who knit these gloves and hats are widowed women. Traditionally, widowed Nepalese women are considered outcasts, and a drain on the family. The women’s organization that Bootstrap has partnered with, hires and trains these women, providing them with a nurturing safe-haven and, crucially, a means of living for their whole family.
