Everest Designs offers a wonderful collection of warm and comfortable winter sweater skirts and miniskirts. The hand knit skirts are the perfect apres ski apparel, or a comforting addition to your fall or winter wardrobe. In a world of mass produced products; an artisan crafted, unique, one of a kind, item is a treasured gem. The hand knit Pure New Zealand wool skirts come equipped with a Lycra fabric liner that prevents clinging to whatever you choose to layer underneath.
THE WOMEN BEHIND THE SKITS
Everest Designs works with Himalayan Knitwear, a Nepalese womens knitting cooperative, to produce styles and craftsmanship that last a lifetime. The cooperative is made up of almost 150 women and utilizes fair trade, small scale cottage manufacturing methods which help to support local rural communities in the Kathmandu valley of Nepal.
Everest Designs founder Choti Skousen is committed to the quality products she delivers to her customers, but her dedication goes well beyond that, to include the well-being and betterment of the women who craft Everest Designs skirts. Choti was born and raised in the mountains of Nepal with her Sherpa family. Her company is woven together with the Nepalese communities like the wool clothing they produce.
