These beautiful roses are part of our Unique Project and are hand crafted for fair wages by women with disabilities in Nepal. They are perfect to scent your drawers, closets, car, or any room in the house. Showcase them in a vase, decorate a table, or use them in your car to enjoy some aromatherapy on the go. They come in multiple colors and are packaged in a gift ready handmade lokta paper bags.
Add 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil to your rose and place this plastic-free eco fabric freshener in your drawers to enjoy fresh, toxin-free, and naturally scented clothes every day!

We partnered with EPSA an organization based in Kathmandu whose goal is to empower and assist women with disabilities through training and employment opportunities.
In Nepal, the standard living conditions can be extremely hard for physically challenged and people with disabilities, and especially for women. Due to traditional conservative culture and male dominated society, in addition to lack of education, knowledge, and technology, people with disabilities are often badly neglected by their own families and communities. Women with disabilities are discriminated thrice: firstly for their gender, secondly for being poor and thirdly for being disabled.
We learned of the work EPSA while in Kathmandu, and felt that it was important for us to partner with them to bring you the beautiful felting work of these amazing artisans.Each piece is unique, hand-made, and supports these wonderful women as they work with dedication, passion, and always a beautiful smile to overcome the difficult conditions they are faced with and provide a better life for themselves and for their families."La vie en rose" Eco Fabric Fresheners are available in several colors. They are the perfect eco-friendly fair trade gift, for your mom, your friends, or just for yourself!
