THE WHITE YAK

The White Yak is an ethical textile and leather goods company committed to empowering the peoples of the Himalayas through combining traditional textiles with modern designs.

The reason for the name The White Yak comes from a tale about a young man who got attacked by a bear. The father of the dying man decided to offer a sacrifice in order to save the life of his son. A white yak was chosen and sent away into the Himalayas; according to the story, the young man survived. We at The White Yak take our inspiration from this story of sacrifice to design and produce our products.
