Cats & Ghosts brings together high design and fair trade production to introduce Nepalese artisan handicrafts to the luxury fashion accessory marketplace. Born out of a design aesthetic that blends multiculturalism with inspirations from western art, architecture and vintage fashion, Cats & Ghosts brings these designs to market by supporting local pashmina, jewelry and textile artisans in Nepal. All of Cats & Ghosts’ products are ethically and sustainably produced including factories that are fair trade certified, natural fabrics and dyes that do not harm the environment, and materials sourced without harm to people or animals. Cats & Ghosts creates bold, contemporary design that adheres to strict quality standards of materials and craftsmanship, elevating local Nepalese handicrafts to products for discerning international fashion audiences.
Cats & Ghosts was founded by Illustrator and Designer Barsha Dahal. Although she found her print and web design work satisfying, she wanted her passion to reach into something of a more tangible and practical nature. Thus, she realized that tangible items from her culture would be the perfect canvas for her artistic work. Cats & Ghosts blends the traditional with the modern, with luxury materials that heighten ones senses of sight, smell and touch, timeless craftsmanship by Nepalese artisans, and contemporary designs.
