NIRVANNA DESIGNS: Timeless Techniques from the Himalayan

written by JILL December 6, 2016

The founders of Nirvanna Designs discovered the inspiration to start their business from an motivational trip to Asia over 2 decades ago. Their travels gave them a deep appreciation and love for the culture and their experiences birthed the startup of this company.   Products by Nirvanna Designs honour the Himalayan people and carry forward their rich traditions and skillful craftsmanship.

Experiencing new culture’s is something that we both really enjoy, sometimes you feel out of place in your own culture and traveling to experience a completely different way to do life can give a fresh perspective on life. It seems as tho that happened to the founders at Nirvanna Designs upon their visit to Asia. The kindness and beauty they experienced on their travels inspired the future design of their products. Nirvanna Designs sells both men and women’s socially conscious hand knit winter and fall accessories. The beauty of their products is that they kind of work interchangeably. Both of us have on the slouchy toque and I’ve seen Luke in my warm hug (the oversized neck warmer) and gotta say, he looked pretty hot!

I love, love this beautiful neck warmer. I affectionately refer to it as my “warm hug” and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since it step foot in my house. It’s officially described as the ‘Oversized Cable Rib Neckwarmer’ and boy is it richly made.If you’re like me and love to stay warm during the winter (or really anytime of the year), you should consider adding this beauty to your wardrobe.

Nirvanna Designs has a great slogan on their twitter page that I (Luke) love: “Hand knit, unique designs to warm your free spirit as you roam the world.” Just makes you wanna grab one of their hats and go for a road trip! With winter fast approaching I needed a good toque and scarf pairing for those chilly nights and this slouch hat and long comfy scarf are just what I was looking for. The hat aptly named the ‘Depp Slouch’ feels expensive and looks great, and the ‘Marbled Scarf’ is beautifully made and the comfort level is certainly appealing.
