Women in Kathmandu, Nepal, knit this unconventional, colorful winter hat from pure wool. A single artisan is responsible for the item from start to finish, from casting on the first stitch to the hand-embroidered accents, to the tassel on the top. The oatmeal-colored hat features textural floral accents and cozy earflaps that can be secured with a tie or worn flipped up.


Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal. 100% wool with a poly fleece lining. Total Height (including earflap): 11"; Width (Circumference) at Brim: 21"; Tassel Length: 6"; Weight: 15 oz.; one size fits most.


Hand wash or dry clean.


When Icelandic designer Gerður Kristjansdóttir was traveling in Nepal more than 15 years ago, she met a group of artisan knitters whose exceptional knit quality, dedication to their artistry, and craft heritage reminded her of the strong knitting tradition in her home country. Recognizing the opportunity to bring these women’s work to a wider audience, she helped set up a cooperative that would provide the artisans with a flexible and stable work environment, and enable them to create the kind of non-traditional designs that Gerður knew would be a hit in the U.S. and Europe.


Since the partnership began, 11 knitting centers have been established where women can come together and work cooperatively if they choose, or they can work at home while keeping an eye on their children. Knitters receive free healthcare, and many of their children’s education is funded through a scholarship fund set up by the cooperative.

    This is a wonderful hat; so colorful. I use it when I am snowshoeing great for protecting your ears. I would say it runs a little small being a petite woman it fits me fine; but I larger adult may have some trouble with size.

      Comments about Kamala Earflap Hat:

      This is a darling and one-of-a-kind set that is well-made and will last for many years. I was just disappointed it wasn't the exact same color and design as in the picture. Ours was a grey base with more maroon flowers instead of the off-white purple and pink.
