Hello there David,
Thank you for the idea . I should try it. It would be good if i could be in the Uk for sometime but I am in Kathmandu and doing the work here in the factory. www.wildweaves.co.uk is being run by my in-laws to help us get the word out. My wife Rosie is working with me here but you know what it is like with two boys and a little girl. I worked for many years in the UK and tried to look for one good partner there but it was not time as yet because I was ahead of my time. I still work for many people in the Uk making their label of clothing as well, and thought it was time to introduce my own designs. My clothing is simple and the reason for that is I want as many people to wear the natural fibre clothing as possible rather than just a chosen few. I believe if i can do it right, then every retailer will be selling a natural fibre shirt in their shops. The plan is that i will have to go back and forth and have a shop in a couple of years. It has been a long journey of i think twelve years of doing this for me. I started off with working for other factories and supplying clothing for companies and then once there was a huge mistake started my own little workshop so I can make sure of things myself. Many of the people I worked with went for production to china for the prices and the volume, so I thought I should sell the things i make myself. If you could help me get in touch with many retailers, I would be open to ideas. Do keep in touch and would love to hear more of your thoughts. Take care,
Hello there David,
I have been working with natural fibres in Nepal for a long time now and can supply you with fibre, yarns, textiles, as well as finished goods. Please have a look at www.heavenhemp.co.uk and www.wildweaves.co.uk to get an idea of what we do. I work with hemp, nettle, cactus, banana, bamboo . Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
