Our cotton bags feature a hand screenprinted Mithila design inspired by artwork from South Nepal. This form of folk art can be traced to the 7th Century and has been passed from generation to generation since. Traditionally practised by women in the Mithila region on mud walls, in more recent times it has crossed the boundary into more traditional art media and has become internationally recognised. The empowerment of women is a strong characteristic of Mithila art. The bags are handmade by a small artisan workshop in Kathmandu, run by the incredibly creative and talented Meera and her team. AURA QUE work hard to support women entrepreneurs in Nepal. We started working with the group in 2018.
Our UK-printed postcards are made from recycled paper and are printed with 'Namaste', a Nepalese greeting which means 'an expression of appreciation and respect to one another' - this is our mantra.
