Himalayan Ladakh Woolies

 



Situated within the folds of the Karakoram mountains lies this extremely stark and cold Trans-Himalayan desert of Ladakh, the hub of a bustling caravan trade between Kashmir, Tibet and Central Asia during the 17-19th century.

 

Frozen in time, the sparse artisan women of Ladakh huddle up at temperatures below -31°F ( -35°C ) for almost 8 months of the year sustaining themselves by creating the magic of their hands in pure sheep, yak and rabbit wool. Inimitable creative expressions across accessories such as scarves, jackets, skull caps, capes & more, really warm woollies, all natural, eco friendly, carbon neutral, eco fashion.

 

What you will find here, you won’t find anywhere else in the world!
