A Helping Hand for Nepal

Update: Yellowtrace have generously given us a 50% discount on their advertising rate to help us spread the word, so throw some love their way too!

With winter fast approaching it’s the perfect time to stock up on warmth, and what better warmth than our fabulous range of beautiful textiles from Bemboka? To help you get ready for the colder months we had planned on offering 20% off all Bemboka products for the month of May, so that you can enjoy the luxurious (and incredibly durable) comfort all winter long, and for many winters to come.

However, over the last couple of weeks we’ve been devastated to hear the news coming out of Nepal. Thousands have lost their lives and many more again are without shelter, food, or warmth.

So, rather than offer you a 20% discount, we’re offering a 20% good feeling. We’ll donate 20% from the retail price of all Bemboka products sold in May to Save The Children. Save The Children have been providing tarpaulins to survivors in Kathmandu, and baby packs consisting of children’s clothes, blankets and soap to the Bhaktapur district. They’re working to expand their reach through Nepal as well.

It’s worth noting that Bemboka products are made to last. They’re machine washable and tumble-dryable, so they’re great for everyday use and will last for years. Anecdotally, we’ve heard stories of hotels just beginning to replace their Bemboka product after ten years of solid, hotel-style laundry turnover. Plus, you just have to touch one to know how gorgeous they are. But be careful — once you do touch one, you won't stop thinking about it until it’s in your home. Plus there's a wide range of blankets and throws in cotton, cashmere, and angora and superfine merino wool; cashmere scarves; linen bedding, and; cotton towels.

So they’re ordinarily money incredibly well spent, but for May, they come with the added knowledge that every time you rug up under your Bemboka blanket, you’ve helped others survive the days and nights in Nepal as they recover from this awful natural disaster.

You can browse the full range on our website, and see it in the showroom in person Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm, or on Saturdays by appointment (just give us a call on 8001 6646 to arrange.) We have a number of options in stock, ready for you to take home, and if we don’t, we can generally get it in fairly quickly. But as long as you’ve ordered and paid for it in May, rest assured that 20% of the price will go to Save The Children.
