The Gaddi Pastoral tribe lives in Bharmour - named after the creator 'Brahma' - at an altitude of above 7000 feet, worshipping Lord Shiva who is believed to reside in area around Lake Mani Mahesh for six months of summer in a year. It falls in Dhauladar range of Himalayas.
Gaddi sheep is their livelihood. This community and traditional occupation of sheep rearing is a balanced and symbiotic process acting as protector and preserver of fragile Himalayan socio - economic - cultural system... And, at macro level, Himalayan Eco-system.
Gaddi sheep wool is organic and has medicinal properties. The semi-nomadic tribesmen wear felted Gaddi wool coat as shown in picture. The natural black wool is used to make a rope called Dora which is tied around his waist. It's 20 meters long and is used to rescue lambs that fall off the hills.
Cholu is a coat with 80 panels and is all handsewn by ladies. It can last up to three generations.
Indigo Amour is trying to sustain this sheep by making fabrics out of this amazing Himalayan wool.

LOS ANGELES REAL ESTATE MARKET REPORTS
How much do house flippers make selling in LA? .
More than 10,000 homes were flipped in 2017
Over the last four years, Los Angeles house flippers have netted profits well in excess of $100,000, according to a new report from LendingHome.
That high total shows why quick buying and selling is popular with many local real estate investors. Over a quarter of all flips in the state of California are undertaken in Los Angeles County, according to the report.
The report finds that, from 2014 to 2017, house flippers—who buy properties with the express purpose of fixing them up and re-selling them—sold 39,042 homes. The median sale price in those transactions was $140,000 higher than the last price paid, the ninth-highest total in all 58 California counties.
That doesn’t take into account the amount flippers spend on repairs and renovation projects before selling properties though, so it’s likely that true profit is less than $140,000.
Eric Sussman, adjunct professor of real estate and accounting at UCLA, tells Curbed that LA’s wide range of sale prices makes it an attractive area for flippers.
“You can find $900,000 houses next to $3 million houses here,” says Sussman. That kind of disparity gives purchases tremendous “upside” for investors, meaning that there’s a lot of room for a home’s last sale price to grow when next listed on the market.
A Zillow study from June found that all sellers in Los Angeles and Orange counties collected median profits of $137,000 when selling in 2017. .
