SUPPORT OUR FRIENDS IN NEPAL! 

Find out why all our Aveda Gift Sets are wrapped with love in handmade paper from Nepal…

These gifts are made from Lokta Bark that’s cooked into a pulp, pressed into screens and dried, then dyed with nontoxic pigments - the way it’s been made for centuries. 
See how it’s empowering papermakers in Nepal…

In Spring 2015, massive earthquakes shook Nepal and millions lost homes and livelihoods. Many emigrated away. 

This gift wrap creates income for papermakers in Nepal who are rebuilding communities after the 2015 earthquakes. It’s Certified Wildlife Friendly, too, so it helps protect the wildlife habitat.
Yet 4,900 resilient papermakers have stayed and our commitment to our partnership remains while they rebuild lives and communities.
