Ketiketa (girl and boy in Nepali) is a French label that works with a traditional Nepalese fabric named 'dumbar kumari', after a Nepalese princess who brought the technique of block printing back from India to Nepal in the 19th century. The princess then invented a new textile: the printed fabric was wrapped in two layers of finest cotton muslin. Originally used for making shawls, it was soon adapted for children's clothing.

Ketiketa works in Nepal with natural fabrics and materials in small scale manufacturing, promoting traditional techniques, associating with block carvers, independent printers and small sewing workshops.

Stories like these always work for me. So, finally... the clothes
