This holiday season, Aveda has partnered with communities in Nepal to present eight limited-edition gift sets.
Aveda has long admired the superior quality artistry of Lokta papermaking in Nepal, a craft that has survived more than 500 years, which is why the company established a partnership with women artisans in Nepal's Bajhang region. Local communities receive fair payment from Aveda for their handmade paper, empowering them to create a sustainable business and protect their land. This holiday season, renewably sourced paper is an element of each of Aveda's eight limited-edition gift sets, featuring new and all-time favorites. Customers can also place a customized selection of Aveda products in a Premium Gift Box, which is wrapped entirely in Lokta paper—a gift in itself. —M.D.
