In the past week I’ve been able to meet up with several contacts and see the factories that they run. So far I’ve visited a clothing production factory, a weaving and pashmina/scarf production factory and a felting factory (producing mostly accessories and hats).
All of my visits were introductory visits, but it’s been interesting to see the places that they work, the items that they produce and get their view points on production and fashion in Nepal. I will continue to make visits to these factories and others in the future to get a more in depth view.
