We currently source products from Nepal which are made primarily by women. Our manufacturer’s core business aim is to empower the women of Nepal, giving them skills they can use to work and become financially independent. This enables them to support their children and their health by working in a Fair Trade environment creating the beautiful products that we supply.

By being successful, the manufacturer in turn is able to support the local production of the materials they use which keeps local people in work and boosts the surrounding community.

Products

We stock a variety of items from ornamental gifts to festival clothing and are always on the lookout for new, colourful and unique products to bring to our customers.

We value high quality and ensure that the items we stock are made to last – so you can buy right and buy once. We want our items to last for as long as possible, and in this way hope to contribute to reducing the amount of rubbish thrown away each year.

Stocking more and more items made with modern sustainable materials, such as hemp, is an ongoing goal for Rickwells Himalayan. THC Free Hemp products are strong, durable and part of a rapidly growing market.
