What we love .....
Raptround began with our love affair with Nepal - the people, the temples, the landscape, the heady scents and intense colours. We at Raptround felt compelled to bring something of this wondrous place home. Luxury Cashmere, one of Nepal's fabulous gifts to the world, is the one we chose to make easily available to you. Made from the wool of Nepalese and Mongolian goats, there is a dazzling array of gorgeous shawls, scarfs and blankets to choose from.
Raptround stocks a very large collection of styles and colours and are constantly updating and adding to the range. Because the shawls are handmade by artisans and not mass-produced, the colours can change from batch to batch. For us, the ever-changing product keeps things exciting and, so far, we are delighted to report that this approach is working for our customers. We want to cater to all tastes with colours to suit everyone.
Input from our Customers. If you feel that the particular colour that you are looking for is missing from our range, please contact us. Only a proportion of our stock is represented on-line so it may be we have what you want in our stores. We are more than happy to send you additional photographs. Also, please do contact us if you have a very particular colour in mind. We are always happy to consider having scarves dyed to order when we next expand our collection even further.
Helping Nepal. Shortly after we launched our business, Nepal was struck with two devastating earthquakes in quick succession. This strengthened our resolve to, not only, maintain our links with our business partners, but to do what we little we could to help the people of Nepal. Consequently, we will be making regular donations to Action Aid's Nepal Relief Fund. For every scarf or shawl purchase that you make, £1.00 is pledged to help re-build the lives of those so cruelly effected by the disaster.
