Happy Sheep originates from the encounter of two worlds: made in Italy design and Nepalese craftsmanship.
We were fully aware of the mastery of Nepalese people as cashmere manufacturers, but since our very first trip to the Kathmandu Valley we realized there was so much more about them. What we found was a mindset in which freedom, respect and dedication melt together to form pure and unconditioned happiness, despite the serious issues of everyday life. We expected to learn a lot about cashmere. But we also learned a lot about people.
Among them was Santa Budhathoki owner of the factory that produced our garments since the very start. Santa was a teenage single mum when her father died, leaving her with no options but to interrupt her studies and start working to make a living. In a couple of years she earned enough to start her little business: a textile factory with just 2 hand flat machines. When we first met Santa we were immediately captivated by the confidence, the radiance and the talent of this woman. Seven years later she is a successful businesswoman running a definitely much bigger factory with 36 automatic machines and 40 employees (30 women), a reality we are very proud of having enhanced.
