HANDWOVEN ON THE TIBETAN PLATEAU

Founded by mother and daughter Kim and Dechen Yeshi in 2007, Norlha is the Tibetan Plateau’s first yak khullu atelier.

Our luxury products are handcrafted by former nomads, who have spun, woven and felted for generations.

We believe in balancing modern technology and traditional knowledge to create sustainable, lasting, beautiful pieces while supporting our local community.
