Empowering semi-nomadic women in the High Himalayas

In August 2015, the Pangong Craft Center officially opened its doors in Phobrang village (altitude 14,650 feet), providing a warm, well-lit space for 60 semi-nomdic women to spin and weave cashmere from the goats they lovingly raise. 

 

 The center has now grown to more than 130 members, producing beautiful handspun yarn and other cashmere items. The women are deeply grateful for the opportunity to earn extra income, and a communal space where they can socialize and bring their children.
