After returning to Kathmandu, to work on our next season and check the coming collection, I feel more than ever we are building on an even greater relationship with our artisans. Nepal feels like a home from home, welcoming and always friendly. The dark clouds (although not the monsoon rain clouds) have lifted and the air feels lighter compared to last year. Walking around Kathmandu one can see a lot has been happening since the destruction left behind by the earthquakes. Destroyed houses have been cleared away and things are moving forward. As ever politics here are extremely difficult and, as everywhere in the world, people have divided opinions about what is best to do.
This time I am trying not to get distracted by the greater problems of the country, but enjoying the simple day to day routines and local people with whom I feel so comfortable and the dedicated, hard working artisans who keep the HTHTLabel fun and worthwhile.
