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
Local Disaster Relief Efforts
and so much more...
