About Us

We are a commercial family enterprise and have run a textile production based in Nepal since 1990.

Nepal

In 1984 we travelled to Nepal for the first time. Henceforth we returned many times due to the fact that we had been mesmerized by the mountains of the Himalaya and its people. In the course of time friendships developed. Finally, in 1988 we began distributing manufactured goods from Nepal.

An Independent Production

Primarily we browsed offers of Nepalese as well as Indian producers in order to find suitable items. But soon we had to decide upon whether or not to continue trading with Nepal for substantial difficulties arose. There were problem concerning production conditions, poor quality of the goods, as well as wrong cuts and sizes. Nevertheless we optimistically decided to set up our own production on the ground. In 1990 we established our self-contained textile production in the Kathmandu Valley. Ever since launching the production, we have been staying on site at least for two months every year. During these stays we are hosting workshops in person for our staff and are organizing all operational procedures so as to uphold the high quality of our products.

Our First Collection

The very first range of goods we had produced independently consisted of traditional cotton shirts for men originating from Southern Germany.(www.hemad.de)

"Hemad" is the Bavarian term for the German "Hemd" ('shirt' in English). This modern German word stems from its Old German equivalent "Hemidi" which translates into 'something cloaking, veiling'. It is generally assumed that Roman tunics were the textile precursors of shirts.
