Our faux leather is a synthetic material bought locally in Kathmandu from a materials distributor, which we have used for some of our bag styles as a vegan alternative to leather. The faux leather products are lined with handwoven cotton and finished with antique brass fittings.
Handmade by a small Nepalese workshop affiliated with the Nepal Leprosy Trust, who employ marginalised people, giving them opportunities through work. We have worked with the team for over ten years developing new products, improving skills and providing equipment for the workshop. As a World Fair Trade Organisation certified member, the workshop give their employees a fair living wage, health care benefits and monthly contributions to their children's school fees.

AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!
