Why did Nepal Shirt start?
Om Yogi, and his team in Nepal have been tailoring in Nepal since 2006. When the Earthquake hit on 25th April 2015, he was lucky to survive it as were his family and team. However, it was clear that the local communities and the entire country needed help. They were desperately thinking of a way that their tailoring skills in Nepal, coupled with the good will of the people in the the rest of the world could be combined to do something that could really help. Nepal Shirt was born.
Where does it get made?
Nepal Shirt makes all of its shirts in Kathmandu by the A Suit That Fits team in Sinamangal, Kathmandu.
