Stay as warm as a sherpa in these hand-knit earmuffs. The whimsical designs will make you happy, as will the story of how they’re made—by women, working at home, in rural communities in Asia. The crafters are paid a fair wage, which helps them raise their families and goes back into helping support the community.
Nirvanna earmuffs will warm your ears—and the story of how they’re made will warm your heart. These unique knitted ear warmers are 100% wool on the outside, with a soft, cozy lining. They look as good as they feel, with both traditional and imaginative designs the young—and young at heart—will love.
Founder Nir Gurel, who often traveled to Asia, was inspired by the craftspeople there. Nirvanna's knitted ear warmers are reminiscent of the kind worn by sherpas in Nepal.
Today, they employ hundreds of local artisans, paying them fair wages for their work—much of which is done by women at home. The money Nirvanna’s workers earn goes back into their local economies, completing what Nir calls the circle of Karma.
