About Us

Our Philosophy

Orwell + Austen creates beautiful and playful garments designed to champion environmentally conscious, sustainable, socially responsible, and ethical production. 

Our best-selling cashmere pieces are made using the finest grade natural yarns, whilst we also offer a range of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified 100% organic cotton printed t-shirts and sweatshirts. 

All of our pieces are lovingly crafted either in Nepal by a small, ethical, family-run producer in the Kathmandu Valley - with whom we have worked for almost a decade - or, in the case of our organic cotton pieces, by a Fair Wear Foundations (FWF) producer.

We hope that you will join us in living a life in colour and, above all, in celebrating the skill, expertise, and craftsmanship of these Nepalese artisans and producers.
