2018 has been a year of change and growth for Bahini, where challenges were met with hope and new opportunities. After years of preparation we finally launched Bahini in November and celebrated the launch with a heartfelt party in Hong Kong. Since our launch we’ve attended various markets to raise awareness about our mission. The Green Queen spotted us and ranked us as one of the 10 Best Low-Waste, Conscious & Ethical Presents of 2018, with the description: “Ethically made from environmentally- friendly materials with a built-in give-back philosophy? This is the fashion brand of the future.” Another great news we received was when we were chosen as this year’s Christmas gift for all employees at BAS in Stockholm, Sweden. -How fantastic is this!? We are incredibly grateful for all this support.
Since our launch Bahini has, together with our tribe of superheroes, managed to give 14 Nepali girls a future in freedom!
We want to give a special thanks to all of you for joining us in our mission and for making 2018 a year to remember - Thanks to our #mybahini tribe, 14 bahinis have been given loving homes and scholarships! And thanks to all of you who have purchased a Bahini scarf, we can now help even more women get employment at our Fair Trade certified partners. What a fantastic way to end the year!
With a mission to empower even more girls, it is with excitement, hope and heaps of new stuff in our plans that we now enter a new year.
Wishing you all a fabulous 2019!
With much love,
Miyabi - founder of Bahini
