Anu and Prabina
Mother also worked at the factory and would sometimes take her with her
from a young age, so Prabina knows the place like home! It’s 16 years
since she started working for Dhundu herself.
This is testament to the
way Dhundu treats his workforce and how seriously he takes his
responsibility for his staff.
It’s common knowledge that he
regularly provides work for his team, even when orders are lacking. He
views his workers as extended family with close bonds and valued
friendships having formed over the years.
Most of the knitting
work is carried out by women at home, but today the women have met in
the ancient city of Bhaktapur to socialise while they knit. They’re
knitting hats for Namaste and will be paid a piece rate, which enables
them to fit the work into their free time.
