Fair trade

Finely knitted on hand-operated knitting machines by artisans at a small workshop in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. The organisation works to fair trade principles. All pieces are finished to a high standard. AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!

Due to its natural antibacterial properties, wool naturally resists odours and requires infrequent laundering. Wool is one of the most sustainable fabrics in existence; renewable and biodegradable, it requires relatively little water for its production.

Wool fabrics are resilient and easy care, providing low temperatures are used in their washing. They also retain their natural qualities of insulation, breathability and elasticity over time.
About the Brand
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!
