About Us

Assa’s roots are in Kathmandu, Nepal. Established in 2015 Assa aims to help preserve the craft of weaving while providing a safe and stable work environment for the weavers working with us.

We are based and ship out of Wellington, New Zealand.

Our Fiber

Our Cashmere and Merino wool is sourced in the Mongolian stepps. It is then processed in Ulaanbaatar the capital city of Mongolia.
We combine our Cashmere range with wool for strength, Adding wool reduces yarn breakage during weaving and crafts a more durable finished product in our shawls and throws

Once in Kathmandu our yarn is hand woven by our master weavers into our Assa Products. 

Our Weavers Rampyari and Bishnumaya.
