When you buy an upcycled product, you are contributing to remove waste from the Khumbu region
In our shop, you can find the unique pieces created by our invited artists and designers. All the products are made out of found raw materials in the Khumbu region and the Himalayas, and are sold under the brand moware design – mountain waste repurpose.
moware design has created a dedicated line of products for Sagarmatha Next, made by invited artists and designers.
The products are sold online as well as in our shop at Sagarmatha Next centre.
moware design is a social enterprise dedicated to upcycling waste into beautiful high-quality products.
moware design was born in 2013 as a design-led intervention to give meaning to the waste left behind in the Himalayas. The company started to promote paper waste management in offices while giving employment to low-income women from Nepal.
Over the years, moware design started to experiment and work extensively with other types of waste such as aluminium, wrappers, and glass bottles, hence creating a wide range of high-quality products that includes stationary, jewellery and dining sets. moware design has trained and empowered about 25 low-income women to utilize their skill set and innate love of creation to better their lives and better our planet.
