Aji's is a social enterprise that enables home based elderly makers to sell handmade products via their online store and retail partners. Aji's currently has 17 makers from ages 58 to 92 based in Kathmandu Valley who make products ranging from knitted socks to macrame plant hangers. Majority of the makers are women with one 70 year old male maker.
Aji's was founded in Kathmandu by sister duo Lorina Sthapit, Irina Sthapit, and Pursarth Tuladhar in 2018. Champa Devi Tuladhar, 76, grandmother of Lorina and Irina was the inspiration for starting Aji's. 'Aji' means grandmother in Newar language.
