Helping rebuild Nepal through a partnership with local paper makers.
Over the years guests have come to know and love Aveda’s signature paper that wraps the holiday gift sets. This beautiful Certified Wildlife Friendly® paper is hand-crafted by the people of Nepal as part of Aveda’s now 10 year1 partnership with the Himalayan Bio-Trade (HBTL) papermaking cooperative. The purchase of this paper has created income for thousands of full and part time makers since 2007.2
The 2017 Aveda holiday gift set collection will feature red and green handmade Lokta bark paper gift boxes. And for the first time, select locations will offer custom gifting boxes in 4 colors of handmade lokta bark paper, including natural, brown, red and green as well as 5 colors of ribbon including lavender, ivory, red, brown and green.
With the purchase of one of Aveda’s pre-packaged gift sets, guests can become a part Aveda’s mission to “care for the world we live in,” and help support the community of women papermakers in Nepal.
