Our Story

Our Story

I first travelled to Nepal in 1999 working as an International Development Consultant to help impoverished communities become economically sustainable. It’s also where I met and fell in love with my darling husband, Ray.

I bought my first cashmere travel wrap in the backstreets of Kathmandu. A luscious, rich Tibetan red travel wrap which I adore till this day.

It’s soft and comforting and it reminds me of my first visit to Nepal and of my life stories since then. Like a trusted friend, it kept me warm on my travels. I wrapped it around our first born baby, Amelia, to keep her warm and snug and one day, when the time is right, I will hand it on to one of my daughters’ children yet to be born.
