Find a market for our Nepali woolen products

Status: Finished
Step: 
1

There is currently an order of 500 pieces of the woolen products for the women who passed the first skills training. However, there is no perspective yet for what will happen after the 2 months that the production is ongoing for this order. Fortunately the Association of Craft Producers also said they would put an order. But of course a more stable income would be of great benefit to the women!

Are you a marketing specialist? The first important thing would be to do market research. There are currently 25 knitters who can produce
Knitters can knit 2 hats per day
Gloves 2 pairs per day
Socks 2 pairs per day
1 Sweater per weak (simple design) - if the design is difficult, it will take more time to knit.

minimum price list of woolen products (simple design)

Muffler: $ 6.00
Jumper/Sweater: $ 20.00
Caps with ear: $ 5.00
Gloves: $ 2.00
Socks: $ 4.00

The price may vary as per size, design and patterns.

Hi Ilona,
Sorry I didn't see your message immediately - sometimes I'm a bit wary about this notification of new messages...doesn't always seem to work properly.

To be a task owner means that you are the one responsible that the discussion is kept going regarding the task you own in ultimately that the result foreseen is achieved. So if you're anyways working on the website it would be great if you were responsible for this PR task: one certain result would be the website and you could have additional discussions with neighbours regarding a) the website and b) possible other places to publish a story on Yoshinkhel or other PR that might lead to financial or volunteer support for the community.

We had a great result with the document produced by our worldschool student team (see under resources) and still hope that they find the time to make a great catalogue and maybe even website for promotion even though they will start university soon ;) Also Simone offered to open an Ebay store - which is definitely a great idea once we have collected your ideas and have a solid concept regarding quality, transport and possible return of the products. I'll be opening a task on helping with the Ebay store already, just in case any of the neighbours have experiences already and would like to share them.
