Much of the Destino Jewellery, Sterling Silver and Baltic Amber collection is manufactured by crafters in Nepal whose livelihoods are largely tied to the export business. Our suppliers work closely with women’s groups such as the Educational Development of Women of Nepal (EDWON), founded by Bishnu Maya Pariyar who is passionate that children who are often marginalized due to their caste can take advantage of all educational opportunities available.
Her educational programme brings together women from diverse castes who she actively encourages to integrate. The establishment of this women’s cooperative enterprise has assisted disadvantaged Dalit women build self esteem and invest in their own community. The Destino Jewellery, sterling silver and baltic amber jewellery range from Nepal is manufactured by hand by fifteen to twenty families in Kathmandu and in the surrounding hills of their homes.
