Founded in 1993, Lamali is a French company specialized in developing and distributing paper and felt products made by hand in Nepal. The full creation and design process is done in-house, at the Lamali office in Paris.
For over twenty years we have forged strong relationships with several partners in Nepal and India. These suppliers are responsible for the production of all our collections – from paper to felt products or even textiles – and are our allies in the new directions we chose for our company.
Our Nepalese partners are also part of the very few companies in Nepal that have been able to obtain the Fair Trade Certification. Organization, revenue, working hours, women’s employment, labor and environmental protection are at the heart of an ongoing effort to improve the working environment of our different teams.Furthermore this effort is directed towards production itself, and has helped our Nepalese suppliers obtain international certifications.
Since its foundation in 1993, Lamali has engaged itself to promote the education of children in Nepal, in parallel to its commercial activities. This engagement far precedes the creation of the company Lamali, as it is tied to David Friendlander’s experience in Nepal since the 1980’s. He has built strong ties with the Humla region, supporting Kunga Tsering since the beginning in his effort to improve the living conditions in the region.
