Meet Our Tailors

Meet Wangmo. She first started working for Eternal Creation's designer and founder, Frances Carrington, as a nanny. Wangmo spent two and a half years caring for Frances' two young children while she was at work. When the children were old enough to start school, Frances helped train Wangmo as a tailor at the Eternal Creation workshop. Wangmo learned fast, and today is an expert tailor who specialises in womens tops, girls dresses and pyjama sets.

Meet Palden from Kham, in Eastern Tibet. Palden was sent to India by her parents to learn Tibetan reading and writing - she hasn't seen her family for over seven years now, and dreams of returning to Tibet one day soon. In the meantime she says she is enjoying her work with Eternal Creation, and hopes that her new found skills will help her find work in Tibet when she goes back, as she would like to be able to earn enough for her parents to retire.

Lovely, appropriately nicknamed, has one of the loveliest smiles in the workshop (maybe in Dharamsala!). She finds the town very peaceful compared to her home village in bustling Punjab state. She moved here after divorcing her abusive husband, which was not easy as she received no family help, but Lovely was determined to support herself and her son on her own terms. Her favourite garments are the girls and women's dresses and the women's kimonos.
