Designer spotlight: Mulxiply

 

Working in the developing world is a constant reminder of the tremendous need for each of us to stand should-to-shoulder in the face of suffering and injustice.

 - Tanja Cesh, Co-Founder, Mulxiply

Mulxiply (pronounced 'multiply') is a beautiful example of a business that recognises the challenges and hardships of working in a country like Nepal, but chooses to focus on hope and opportunity.  Nepal has a rich tradition of woven textiles, metalwork and wood-carving, and these skills underpin Mulxiply's collection.

Designed in Maine, USA, their jewellery and bags are made in partnership with various groups in the Kathmandu Valley.  Their bags are made in collaboration with the Association for Craft Producers Nepal, which employs more than 1,200 artisans in rural and urban settings - 90% of whom are female.  In addition to a fair wage, each employee has a retirement fund, a monthly stipend if they keep their kids in school for four consecutive years, and a medical allowance.

Multiply's jewellery collection is created in partnership with Yala Mandala, a metal-working studio dedicated to preserving traditional skills and creating dignified work for Nepali artisans (and we love the fact they have a female CFO).

We are so excited to announce that Mulxiply jewellery will be available soon at www.renegadesofchic.com.  Follow us on Instagram @renegadesofchic and be the first to know when it arrives! In the meantime, here are a few of our favourite pieces from the Mulxiply collection.

Book Review: The Power by Naomi Alderman

April 08, 2018

I had very high expectations for this book. Possibly too high. To be fair, The Power was described by Margaret Atwood as ‘Electrifying!’ and it won the Bailey’s 2017 Women’s Prize for Fiction, so I feel like some level of expectation was justified.
