BEHIND THE SCENCES

THE TEAM BEHIND NIRMI

Hello, we are Elisabeth and Christian, the team behind NIRMI!

A few years ago, when we were traveling through Mexico with our two young daughters (of course carrying them in a baby carrier) we got to know women weavers from the highlands of Chiapas and their beautiful handwoven fabrics.

We not only learned a lot about their traditional weaving techniques, but also about the challenges these artisans have to overcome in their everyday life. We soon realized that there were also traditional textile artists outside of Mexico , such as block printers in India, pedal weavers in Burkina Faso or embroiderers in Hungary, who faced similar challenges.

We decided to partner with these women and work on a platform to sell their fabrics internationally. This is how we had the idea of NIRMI - the baby carrier with the exchangeable impact patches.

 

Through the patches, we make their unique fabrics shoppable and wearable for parents around the world . And while it allows parents to change the design of their baby carrier on the fly , they enable women artisans from different parts of the world to earn a regular and decent income .
