Himalayan Blooms 純棉編織手環，由印度喜馬拉雅山偏遠鄉村的婦女人手織製。
Rakish 是保護的意思，而Bandan即是連結、團結。在印度的兄妹節（Raksha Bandhan），婦女不論老少，都會把美麗的織繩（Rakhi）繫在兄弟的手腕上，表示對他們的保護、幫助和友愛之情。這種編織手環的文化去年成為了潮流風尚，一眾荷里活女星紛紛配戴Rakhi來個 mix & match，而年青一族也喜歡為摯友送上一條Rakhi來表達真摯情誼。
Himalayan Blooms 純棉編織手環，由印度喜馬拉雅山偏遠鄉村的婦女人手織製。品牌創辦人Pratibha看見當地婦女常為家人編織溫暖衣物保暖，手藝精湛，於是協助她們組織編織團隊，設計及織製一系列織品出售，讓她們有機會賺取額外收入幫補家計，或可補助微薄的農作物收入。
Rakish in Hindi means protection; bandan means bond. Rakshabandan means, “A bond for protection”. In Raksha Bandhan, girls in India have been trying the sacred thread on the wrist of their brothers for their protection in the world vulnerable to women. This symbolic tradition creates a very sacred bond and immense lifetime significance. Even today, this tradition is practiced by Indians all over the world. A friend may also tie a Rakhi to her/his friend to signify the depth of their friendship.
Himalayan Blooms' founder, Pratibha Krishnaiah, is a young professional from Bangalore, full of enthusiasm and aspiration to make an impact on the lives of women, landed herself in a remote village in the Himalayan region. Laboring for months on where to begin, she noticed that ladies in the region possessed a unique skill set for knitting, acquired from caring for their families to stay warm in the winter. Pratibha started to explore ways to utilize these knitting skills to further empower them. Never before had the ladies knitted to earn a living or to supplement their limited agricultural income. The shear idea that they could use these skills to supplement their income was exciting for the women of the Himalayan region.
