ABOUT THE ARTISANS
It almost seems too simple: a skein of wool saving a life. For women of Nepal, beaten down by a complex and consuming social status, wool is a welcome reality. Hasroon is one of these women. Hasroon was married at 18 and living a happy life with her infant son and husband until her in-laws began demanding dowry money. When Hasroon’s family couldn’t pay, she was beaten, humiliated, and ultimately covered with gasoline, pushed into the bathroom, and set on fire. Today, Hasroon works for Padhma Creations, a social enterprise founded by Kesang Yudron. Padhma Creations gives Hasroon the training and job she needs to provide a secure and supportive life for her and her son.
