Ribbons as a step forward
In our factory in Nepal, we do not only have very experienced people, but also starters.
One of our starters is Alisha Limbu, she is 20years old and she started working in our Nepalese factory last year in August.
She started working in the fashion industry because she had an interest in stitching and she wanted to grow and get more knowledge in a nice environment, so she chose for our factory to do so. Another reason for starting to work was that she wanted to help her family and have her own salary.
The way we got to know her, is as a very shy girl, which you can fully trust. She is a Christian and takes leave time to practice her religion. Her English is exceptionally good for a girl her age. But because she is so shy, it is sometimes difficult for her to open up towards us. However, Phillip is working on this skill. :)
Alisha is from Illam- a region near Jhapa, so she decided to come to Kathmandu-the capital of Nepal to find better opportunities and reach higher goals in her life. For the moment she is studying Commerce Management, next to her job at JUX. Of course she has flexible work times so that she can attend to all her classes.
She likes Nepali POP music, singing and being around friends.
Her first “challenge” at JUX was to create 750 ribbons so she learns how to stitch. Master Raju # 1 in the handshake number system (you can find this on our website) is in charge with Alisha’s training. The ribbons have been done, 100% from left-over JUX fabrics. In this way Alisha learns to stitch, and fabrics get recycled and find a new life.
So…if you have been to the Green Fashion Competition, and received a goodie bag- then you also received the ribbon from Alisha. :)
