On the nettle’s road

Trip to Nepal in 2008 – on the nettle’s road

In search of the giant nettle of the hight Himalaya from 2 to 3 metres. I witnessed the whole process of natural extraction of the fiber until the weaving thread. A 10-day trip to the heights of the Himalayas and many villages in the Nepal. Nepalese use it for weaving thick traditional fabrics. Yeleen Design weaves nettle mixed with linen for curtain sails and other fabrics in a very contemporary and chic spirit.
