Long-Term Commitment

Laundromat has a relationship with artisans in Nepal spanning over 20 years. Together they have weathered many storms—from political uprising, strikes, rolling blackouts, and the recent earthquakes. They are supported in the short term, and continue to help them heal, grow, and become self-reliant in the long term.

Good Working Conditions

Employees in the Kathmandu enjoy some of the best working conditions in Nepal. They work in a new lightning proof and earthquake proof (up to 8.3 Richter scale) building, with large windows, excellent ventilation, fire exits on all floors, World Health Organization (WHO) standard water quality, showers, toilets, a generator for power shortages, and a quiet garden for lunch breaks. Employees generally work 8 hour days, with proper lunch and tea breaks. They earn double their hourly wage for overtime hours worked during rush periods.

laundromat artisans

Mission

Laundromat is committed to ensuring that all parties involved in their business are treated respectfully, fairly and equitably.  Their color dyes are eco-friendly. Their products are made with 100% natural wool. Those who make their products are treated with respect, paid fairly and work in a healthy environment. Laundromat is committed to providing reliable and safe working conditions for their artisans in Nepal.

Impact

Laundromat provides vital wages to their artisans in Nepal.  They pay in local currency avoiding middlemen and institutions that would otherwise garner wages.  This increases the purchasing power of artisans as they make significantly more than prevailing minimum wages in the region.  Artisans work on their own schedule at their own pace providing the flexibility necessary to look after their families and their communities.  Construction of new production and distribution facilities has provided safe working spaces that are designed to withstand earthquakes.  All of this combines to allow families to maintain their cultural integrity and traditional lifestyle.
