The insulated Kirtipur Sweater, which won a Gold award at ISPO, is a mesh of handcrafts and new fabric technology. The 100% lambswool sweater is handcrafted by women from a small village near Kathmandu, Nepal where it takes 7 days to handcraft and assemble one sweater. It's lined with PrimaLoft® Black Insulation Eco, a synthetic insulation that offers warmth, softness, and lightweight comfort and contains 60%-post consumer recycled material.
The unique geometric pattern of this garment is inspired by the rich tapestries of Bhutan. Bhutanese textiles are recognized for their abundance of color and variation of patterns, and are often displayed on traditional garments.
Making products in Nepal means the world to us and our communities. By bringing meaningful employment and income to so many, we’re able to make a real difference in their lives. In this way, we’re able to fulfill our belief that small brands can change the world.

Purchased the men's Kirtipur Sweater (large) two weeks ago and put it to immediate use during a cold Midwest winter snap. It is amazingly warm and fits perfectly with room for layering ( I am 6ft,, 200 lbs). The craftmanship and artisanship of this sweater is apparent as soon as you put it on and also helps you identify in a small way with the Nepalese craftworkers/artisans who hand made it.
Very nice jacket!
