Ganesh Himal Trading
Handknit Recycled Sari Skull Cap
Bright, fun and unique this skull cap is made from yarn that is recycled from old saris. The silk sari scraps are shredded and re-spun then knit into these wonderful and highly popular hats so the colors will be assorted.
Most of Ganesh Himal’s knit items are knit by women in their homes while their children are in school. Organized into small neighborhood groups, one woman is elected as a team leader. The team leader picks up the silk and delivers it with the orders weekly. She then will pick up the finished product and deliver them to the main office. Once at the main office they do the finishing, lining and final quality control. For Nepali women it is vital to be able to work in their homes while caring for their children and at the same time gain a fair income. This income gives them a larger voice in their homes and allows many to keep their children in school..
