Our new winter accessory- fingerless gloves, hand-knit from 100% pure Australian merino wool will keep your hands warm and toasty during these cold winter days but give you the freedom to use your tips for your everyday routine. We love the contemporary design which is perfect for everybody!

This one of a kind piece has been handmade by the immensely talented women artisans of the Naggar village in Kullu Valley, Himachal Pradesh. The sweet details on the gloves are inspired by their traditional motifs.

Though partial to the locally available 'desi oon', the team is equally at home with the imported pure Australian Merino. The merino yarns are handspun and handwoven or knit depending on the product.
The natural dyes used are made from materials sourced seasonally and locally from the orchards, fields, and jungles surrounding the villages. Local flora that has been used for dyeing are berries and flowers of shrubs called bekhal and shrambal, a grass called looth, rakhal which grows in the higher reaches and walnut bark and shells. The naturally dyed yarns are then ready to be knit or woven.
Kullvi WHIMS is a self-help group formed by nine women artisans of Naggar village in Kullu Valley. The women are all traditional artisans, who learnt their craft practices of spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet from their family members and have mostly practised their crafts for themselves, weaving pattus and blankets or knitting sweaters, mojiris and socks.
The Kullvi WHIMS model provides a fair income for the women artisans who belong to the SHG, empowers them by valuing and validating their skills and attempts to develop links and relationships with the herders.
