Artist Details Diamond Weave Balwa

Meet your artisans

Sabina has been working at our knitting factory for the last four years. As an expert hemmer, she perfects the final details on all our sweaters. Living with her family in the Patan neighborhood of the Kathmandu Valley, Sabina’s journey begins with a 25 minute “micro ride” - the shared minivan transport system in Kathmandu- to our factory each day. While technical proficiency has earned her respect in the workplace it is a reputation for making the best “gundrunk achar” - pickled mustard leaves - in Kathmandu that has won her the love and admiration of her colleagues. MONK was lucky enough to try her specialty and we’ve been searching NYC for it ever since.
