Earthy Yak Wool Products by Norlha are made with traditional methods and local resources, guaranteeing beautiful textiles that are community supported. In Tibetan language, "norlha" means "wealth of the Gods" and is used by many local nomads in reference to their yaks, which are among the most important resources of the Tibetan Plateau.

Norlha founded itself as a textile brand that aims to help preserve local tradition and connect it to a greater global market. Founded on US-born and France-raised Kin Yeshi and her daughter Dechen Yeshi in 2007, Norlha works closely with the local community to craft luxurious textiles from yak fiber.

The company represents a passion for fine craftsmanship and a strong sensibility for projects at the crossroad of art and sustainability.
