The residents of Khar have incorporated sustainable harvesting and processing techniques in their Himalayan nettle production chain. Today, Khar is on its way to become a nettle fibre production hub. Mufflers, stoles, suits and other items of clothing, purses and bags are some of the things people in Khar produce.

These products have been exhibited at national and international trade fairs and are considered an excellent souvenir option. At the 5th International Herbal Trade Fair held in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, nettle products from Khar caught the attention of some of the state’s highest dignitaries as well as locals and tourists.

Locals were mesmerised by the idea of producing valuable fabric with something that grows abundantly in local surroundings. They were keen on learning about nettle processing and applying the same technique to yield fabric from the Himalayan nettle, locally pronounced as “bicchoo ghas” in their area.

In a way, the otherwise unnoticed, remote mountain community of Khar has been able to establish its identity through the use of biological resources. Perhaps, in the near future, people will come to visit Darchula to learn more about the place and its people.
