The beginning of an extraordinary story of a small ethical fashion house starts with an objective to revive, preserve and promote the textile art, craft and traditional way of life in the remote mountains of Himalaya ‘Ladakh’. Jigmat duo set out to create an industry from local resources.
Jigmat Couture Studio is located in Ladakh (4000-5300 meter above sea level). Ladakh lies embedded in the mountains of karakoram in the north-west, the Himalaya in the south-west and the Trans Himalaya at its core. The mighty river Indus originating from the interior of Tibet is predestined to flow right through the centre of Ladakh. The region is rich in livestock such as yak, goat, sheep and camel from which some of the finest and exquisite quality of wool and cashmere are extracted.
