Description

Contemporary cashmere knitwear and clothing. Luxurious quality, yet affordable.


Company description
As a family business we believe strongly in fair trade and investing in people and communities, but not at the expense of our products - as it happens, we think they go hand in hand. Production Fig has two production sites in Kathmandu, Nepal, where we manufacture our high-quality knitwear and wraps. We select and import only the finest cashmere yarn from Mongolia, where it is spun prior to being shipped to our facilities in Kathmandu. The clothes and wraps are made on hand machines - a labour intensive and skilled process. We employ and train mainly female workers to use the machines that knit the basic designs into the correct shape, style and measurements of the garment using pre-made design patterns. The garment is then dyed, assembled and finished by hand, and passes quality control before being shipped.
The Workforce We employ about 150 people in our production sites in Nepal. Our workforce comprises mainly of young women who are usually the main income earners within their family group. We ensure that they are well paid, and have excellent working conditions, as we feel these are basic rights. We have introduced facilities into the workplace that would seem normal in the United kingdom but are not so common in South Asia - for example, clean drinking water machines and proper toilet facilities. There is very little staff turnover within the company - most of our employees have been with us from the very beginning, and we value their continued presence as the company has grown.
Beyond Cashmere We try at all times to be environmentally aware, using as many local materials as we can, creating a supply chain which creates work for people outside our business. All the packaging, tags, and gift boxes are sourced locally, as well as the transport and shipping services that move our goods. All in all, it creates a rich source of income for the community.
