We produce hand-woven shawls, stoles, scarves and throws using natural dyes and Himalayan wool, eri silk and pashmina. Our objectives include: produce high quality handloom products, popularize the use of environmentally friendly natural dyes and provide a market for craft products made in the Himalayan region. 


Himalayan Weavers products are different:

  • all products are environmentally friendly as they are made using only natural fibres and natural dyes. The dyeing is done in-house and we guarantee that our products do not contain any chemical colours. A number of naturally occurring materials are used, most of which are plants. These include madder, tesu, indigo, pomegranate, harada, henna and lac.
  • A part of the yarn used by Himalayan Weavers is hand spun. This gives a very special soft feel and also provides increased employment opportunities for local people. 

All the products are hand-woven. 

We work with about 20 local people, 11 of whom belong
