Indigo Robe

When the going gets tough, the tough put on indigo! In Japan, Samurai warriors would wear Indigo under their armor because of it has anti-microbial properties that aided in the healing of wounds. Additionally, real indigo is flame retardant up to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. (Note: please do not test this on your Indigo Kimono Robe. It's cotton, and you'll quickly be without a robe.) Just because indigo is tough doesn't mean you can't throw on the Indigo Kimono Robe and lounge around the house! This robe is crafted by the artisans of Manushi. Translating to mean, "energetic woman," Manushi empowers women to take charge of their own lives through sustainable employment and financial independence.

The nonprofit organization Manushi, meaning "energetic woman," was established in 1991 to assist poor, disadvantaged Nepali women. Located in Kathmandu, Manushi works with women in various parts of the country. The organization's goals are to promote gender perspective in sustainable development, to enhance women's social and economic status, to put women in the forefront of human development, and to put marginalized people in the world of work through handicraft production and small businesses. In addition to craft production and marketing, Manushi conducts community development, entrepreneurship and skills training, and provides microfinance loans. Currently some 90 percent of Manushi's artisans are women. Constitutionally Nepali women have rights, explains director Padmasana Shakya, but practically they have few opportunities within a culture that discriminates against women.
