"Nepal Projects grew from our desire to use Menu as a platform for making a positive difference. Many young Nepali women from poor families risk being lured into prostitution. Through education of children and employment of young women we offer a sound and viable alternative. The Nepal Projects is our way to celebrate great craftsmanship, while helping vulnerable workers secure a better future for themselves and their families."
- Bjarne Hansen, owner & founder, Menu A/S
Menu has launched a new trade initiative, Nepal Projects. Developed in collaboration with aid organization Danida, Nepal Projects provides much-needed fair employment and future opportunities in one of the world's poorest countries by combining traditional fabric working skills with a contemporary Scandinavian design aesthetic. The result makes up part of our new collection of home accessories: Exquisite hand-weaved scarves and blankets, puffy pillows, practical desktop containers, roomy laundry bags, and cool teddy bears for kids and grown-ups alike. Himalayan cashmere, merino wool, leather and cotton of the finest quality are the main ingredients in the collection. Bridging traditions of East and West, the carefully crafted items are finished in muted grey, blue, green and red tones to suit a minimalistic Scandinavian home decoration style.
While production of the collection takes place in the Kathmandu area, where it employs hundreds of weavers, tailors and other local craftspeople, the design process happens in collaboration with Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects; Kristine Engelbrecht's A Hint of Neon, both in Copenhagen; as well as the Stockholm-based Taiwanese design duo Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei at Afteroom - and the seven-strong team at Note Design Studio.
