Hima-linen

Help protect the endangered snow leopard while making sure you don't save any tomato sauce for later on your shirt. This set of four intricately stitched napkins is made from hand-spun and embroidered cotton by families in the Chitral district of northern Pakistan. Living at the base of the Himalayan mountains, Chitrali families often find themselves at odds with the indigenous and endangered snow leopard population. As many of these families depend on livestock for their livelihood, snow leopard attacks can often have devastating economic impacts and prompt poaching to prevent future attacks.

In an effort to ease the financial burdens that cause snow leopard poaching, the Snow Leopard Trust provides training and equipment to families in central Asia to create beautiful, handmade products from the wool of their livestock. The trust also provides a yearly bonus to communities who sign a conservation agreement to protect the leopards in their area. Handmade by artisans in Pakistan.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

      The napkins are beautiful and well made. My mom loved them and they went well with a table cloth I got her for Christmas last year.

      These Hand-Embroidered Napkins aren't only beautiful, they also help save snow leopards. Learn more about how the Snow Leopard Trust is working with artisans in Pakistan by reading the product story on the left, then let us know whether these handmade cloth napkins have your vote.

      Can these be washed? Very pretty

      They're beautiful. That they are also supporting is just frosting on the cake, which I could easily wipe off :)

      Thanks, Lindsay! Yes, they can be washed. You can put them in the machine on the gentle cycle and either lay them flat to air dry or tumble try them on low.

      I love the embroidery, but I wish the napkins weren't white. I think they'd be stained in less time than it took to embroider them.
