In 2017, Ana, a Nepalese native and one of Pure World's original student co-founders, introduced the team to our first backpack manufacturer - family friend in Kathmandu. As we grew larger, we decided that we needed to find a new supplier that could keep up with our demand. So we began our search and finally found a replacement.

Today we work with the best, most socially responsible manufacturer in the entire country. Our new partners employ roughly 130 Nepalese men and women in Kathmandu and prioritize social responsibility.

These are some of the programs that they offer for their employees:

Free Daily Lunch

Daily Meditation Sessions

10 Days Paid Annual Vacation

Occupational Heath and Safety Training

Personal Finance Classes

Motivational Counseling

Local Disaster Relief Efforts

Student Scholarships

and so much more...
