THE MAKERS

Lydia Trading is the exporting arm of the Nepal Leprosy Trust (NLT), a nonprofit organization in Nepal. NLT works with people affected by leprosy or disadvantaged in other ways, through a range of income-generating, social welfare and medical projects. Currently, NLT runs three self-financing industries producing leather goods, batiks and cloth products. Lydia Traders exports the products and uses the profits to support people affected by leprosy and women in need. Due to consistent orders Lydia Traders has been able to introduce improved medical benefits, working conditions and educational sponsorship to families affected by leprosy and other marginalized people. The Nepal Leprosy Trust was established in 1972. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Lydia Trading since 1986.
