The "Otherways" collection packaging benefits from the softness and flexibility of the best quality of Malmal Indian cotton. It is dyed according to traditions by a master dyer and sewn according to the model of the Nepalese Thaili bag. This accessory will be inseparable from its contents.
The traditional Thaili system closes the "Otherways" collection packaging by pulling on a sliding rope hand-dyed at the workshop.
The pompon tassels are the finishing touch of the packaging. They are carefully handmade in the workshop with the yack wool reserved for the "Otherways" collection and attached one at a time to both ends of the drawstring.
Faithful to local craftsmanship, "Otherways" turned to one of Katmandu's best craftsmen to forge the white metal label. The plate is etched by dipping in ferric acid after the label text has been printed on one of the faces. It is then cut, drilled and polished, and then hand sewn directly onto the "Otherways" products and their packaging.
The Lokta is a free-living shrub on Himalayan lower slopes between 2000 and 4000 meters. From its bark comes a variety of atypical and little brittle handmade paper colored from natural pigments. The text is printed on this Lokta paper by silkscreen printing on a wooden frame.
