The Stripey Sheep
The Stripey Sheep was established in 2006 by Lara Cowley and is based in Keswick, the heart of the Lake District National Park. In 2021 the shop was taken on by Sally Denny, an international charity worker also local to Keswick. The Stripey Sheep has its own label 'Sundar' which means 'beautiful' or 'handsome' in Nepali, a name that mirrors the clothing and accesories that we sell.
At the Stripey Sheep we pride ourselves on selling clothing and accessories that have been fairly traded from the Far East. Since starting the business in 2006 and in the past 6 years, we have made regular trips to the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal and India, to source these handmade items produced using the skill and craftsmanship of local people. In purchasing these items you are helping to support local economies, not mass production!
