Resa Living: SustainAble Fashion In Nepal
Theresa Bastrup Hesman combines clean Nordic design with beautiful colors, textures, and handicrafts from Nepal. Her company Resa Living provides a living wage to over fifty artisans. She employs local people skilled in artisanal crafts like sewing, knitting, weaving, metalwork, and fine jewelry. With a focus on sustainability, she reuses vintage saris and re-imagines leather remnants.
Spending time with Theresa’s employees has only reinforced my view that every person deserves a fair wage for the skill and craft that they bring to the table and that we shouldn’t devalue human beings so that we can have a closet full of inexpensive clothes. #whomademyclothes
