NEEPA HUT is a social enterprise that sells woven home accessories and crafts handmade by communities of weavers in Southeast Asia. Our mission is to preserve and promote the traditional skills, crafts, and heritage of artisans from areas affected by natural disasters, poverty, or over development. Jennifer Shum Abelev is the Los Angeles-based social entrepreneur behind Neepa Hut. Her desire to make a positive impact was sparked by spending time with artisan communities in Southeast Asia. Seeing the women practice their respective crafts, she was struck by their ingenuity and perseverance, despite their humble surroundings. Motherhood, for her, took on a new significance after spending time with these women. Consequently, she traded her career in finance for a new challenge, focused on preserving the heritage of Southeast Asia artisans through Neepa Hut. The crafts of our artisans shape the social fabric of their villages and helps them provide for their children and families. It is their sense of community and togetherness that Jennifer hopes to extend through Neepa Hut’s products. Our values are inspired by the artisans’ dedication to the traditional methods of their crafts and their commitment to the sustainability of their land and its natural products. All of our goods are carefully selected, of premium quality, handmade and locally sourced in fair trade. Our vendors themselves come from the communities that create our specially chosen collections.

Hi! My name is Daniel Summers, and I created this business (a bit by chance) after meeting my now-husband, Tyler. At the time, he suffered terribly with acne. As anyone with acne can attest, it took a daily physical as well as emotional toll. I wanted to and believed I could help him, so we set about experimenting with home remedies, new doctors and holistic treatments. After countless failed attempts, my mother gifted us a hand-crafted soap bar. Funny enough, we’d never tried one! We loved that the ingredients were so much more simple than other “beauty bars” we’d tested but didn’t love one of its primary ingredients—lard. Yes, pig fat. This was our “aha” moment. We finally realized that if we wanted the perfect product, we were going to have to make it ourselves. I spent months learning, researching and experimenting with different combinations. I focused on gentle plant oil and vegan ingredients whenever possible. My first “finished” formula was amazingly (and shockingly) a success! Tyler’s acne began to clear, and my own skin was smoothing and softening. It didn’t take long for people to notice Tyler’s skin and confidence improve, and that’s when they began asking for details! That is also when Les Creme was born. In the years that have followed, we’ve added more soaps and scents, skincare options, luxe lotions and clean candles. I am proud to say that we remain dedicated to handcrafting products that contain no animal fats, are cruelty free and are formulated with the highest quality botanical ingredients. Thank you for visiting our shop and taking the time to discover the Les Creme difference.
