This holiday season is all about gifts that give back. We are proud to be selling handmade woolen accessories from Padhma Knits, a fair labor company based out of Nepal that is committed to helping end the cycle of poverty.
These hats, scarves, and hand warmers are knit by skilled artisans in Eastern Nepal. Most of these women come from extreme poverty and many are rescued from human trafficking or domestic abuse. Padhma Knits launched a pilot program to provide skill training to empower women who might otherwise not have an opportunity to earn an income and or work from home.

The pilot project was a success as the artisans were able to earn enough to buy food, help cover household expenses, and send their children to school. There are now three knitting communities in Nepal, employing 50+ women.

In line with their mission of ending poverty, Padhma Knits also invests in childern. They have an education fund that supports over 35 children as they pursue higher education.

We are ELATED to announce that Whole Foods Market will be carrying our Infinity Scarves at EVERY one of their United States locations.
These scarves are made from our signature organic cotton fabric and are perfect for every season. A portion of all sales of the scarves will go to benefit Padhma Knits. Padhma Knits is a company that helps women who are the victims of sex trafficking. They create fair trade hand knit products in Nepal.
Padhma Knits is a woman owned and operated company that is doing a lot of much needed good in the small communities of Nepal.

Synergy love stripes! Can you think of a more timeless pattern? You can wear them every season, dress them up or down, and they never go out of style. Did you know that our stripes are made from our signature organic cotton/lycra fabric? Did you know that they are so soft that you'll never want to take them off? Did you know that our striped fabric is GOTS certified (read more about that here)? Some of our best selling styles of all time are striped. We have some really exciting striped styles coming this Spring. We're talkin' new colors, new styles, and appliqued/striped styles (WHAT?!). That is all coming soon, in the mean time, here are some of our favorite Synergy Gals rocking stripes like it's their job.
