Mahalati is living proof that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Hailing from Janakpur in the southern plains of Nepal, Mahalati grew up in a household of knitters as her father was a Master Tailor at one of Nepal’s large garment factories. Having cemented her role in the factory’s knitting department, Mahalati continues the family tradition and plays a crucial role in ensuring MONK’s meticulous fitting dimensions are precisely met. When asked if she expects her three children to carry on the family tradition, Mahalati smiles and says that for now she is just happy to be able to walk them to school on her way to work each morning.
