Nepali Bambi Poncho

During a 2007 visit to Nepal, founder Michelle Baldwin discovered inspiration. Surrounded by the skill of the Nepalese women weavers and the luxuriousness and vibrancy of the natural fibers, she knew she had stumbled upon something amazing. In a combination of social sustainability, fashion, and quality the Nepali by TDM accessories line was born. Nepali by TDM works directly with the (predominantly) women cottage industry in Nepal to support them with above-market compensation, access to healthcare, and scholarships for the education of their children in order to help break the cycle of poverty. Michelle believes that income generation opportunities and support for social values enhance and reinforce each other. Thier goal is to support and empower women both in Nepal and all over the world. Each piece is hand-made with intricate workmanship using the highest quality fibers of cashmere, bamboo, silk, modal, wool and eco-friendly azo-free dyes. The designs have graced the pages of Vogue, Marie Claire, Lucky, Good Housekeeping and many others. Celebrities such as Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway, and Kim Kardashian wear Nepali by TDM products and help bring awareness to the mission. All the products are designed and marketed by the team in the United States run by Michelle and based out of Potomac, Maryland. The accessories are sold in over 600 stores and boutiques throughout the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
I was so lucky to receive a Bambi Pocho. I love it! It’s no wonder why the Bambi Bobi is a favorite among Nepali customers. Seen on celebrities like Kristin Cavallari, this gorgeous, square scarf can be worn in any number of ways. The shibori dye pattern provides an easy, everyday option that quite simply makes any outfit look fun and cool. Hand made in Nepal. A portion of the Nepali profits go to help support the women and children of Nepal with health care and education. This is so comfy, and I love the design. So great for Spring and Summer!
