- Oat brown vest
- 100% undyed Tibetan Plateau yak wool
- From Dinadi (Lalitpur, Nepal)
- Machine knitted in Kathmandu, Nepal
- 100% natural yak down. Yak down is a rare and luxurious fiber that is similar in softness and feel to cashmere. It is superior in warmth to many sheep wool fibers while similar in durability.
- Yak down is combed once a year from the yak’s winter coat and praised to be one of the most sustainable fibers available.
- All Dinadi yarn is repurposed to ensure nothing goes to waste. Scrap yarn is used for sewing tags or is sent with the product as a strand of mending yarn. Yarn not suitable for Dinadi designs is used in its zero-waste collection design and sold locally in Nepal.
- All Dinadi product boxes and hang tags are made from local Lokta paper – an environmentally friendly paper made from the bark of a fast-growing bush that grows in the areas of the Himalayas not suitable for farming. Lokta paper is handmade and sun dried; no machines are used in the process.
- All Dinadi employees are paid a living wage, meaning knitters are paid at least twice what comparable companies in Nepal pay. For employees with children, Dinadi pays an extra 25% of their salary towards schooling for themselves or their children.
