Knitting is a part of everyday life for expert artisans. Ladies have been seen doing so while walking a cow, balancing a bucket of water on their head or laughing with friends around cups of chai.

Mitten Profile:

  • The Uttar Design – The Uttar mittens are grey with maroon, black, and white details. They contain the traditional Himalayan patterns of chhota gow (small pendant) and bulabul station (nightingale station), which are patterns that have existed in this community for centuries
  • For all of us who like to think of ourselves as “True, north, strong and freeeee . . . !” These mittens will Blow. Your. Mind. Please accept our homage to snow, evergreen trees, maple syrup, pond hockey, hot chocolate, and lots and lots of winter! The ultimate way to wear your Uttar mittens is riding across the tundra, on a dogsled, decked out in plaid with the aurora borealis twinkling overhead. When winter calls – answer in style and head north.
Footnote: Our products are handmade by real people. For this reason, they may have subtle variations in colour and pattern details from those seen in our photos. The overall colour scheme and design will remain very similar.
