FAIR TRADE

AURA QUE work closely with small producer groups in Nepal that are WFTO members to ensure healthy and safe work environments and payment of living wages. They also encourage trade for small Nepalese family businesses and charity handicraft units, aiming to slowly build long term relationships with these suppliers, under the same fair principles.

The cotton bags are hand made by a small artisan workshop in Kathmandu, run by the incredibly creative and talented Meera and her team. Handwoven cottons are used whenever possible, as it helps to employ individuals in Nepal along each part of the process. The women in Bhaktapur who weave all the cottons are local to the area and have access all day and evening, so can work the hours that suit them with their families.
AURA QUE was founded in 2008 by Laura Queening, from which the name AURA QUE was taken. Laura lived in Nepal for several years, working directly with producers developing new product ideas as well as organising production runs. She worked with a workshop in Bhaktapur that employed local women who worked flexible hours near their homes enabling them to earn an income around their family commitments.

Laura has been working with the same fair trade producers for over 10 years, but now that she is living in Hastings, she visits Kathmandu for a few months every year to source new materials, sample new designs, maintain quality control and catch up with old friends!
