Handmade in Nepal by a small cooperative of women, many with no education,  to increase its export sales so that additional disadvantaged artisans can improve their economic and social conditions. Profit from sales is used for development programs and  to help market the handicrafts of producers operating on a small scale, usually from their homes.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
From ancient times, Nepal is known for its rich and diverse cultural heritage. Historically, two principal religions Buddhism and Hinduism have influenced the Nepalese culture heritage. The syncretic nature of Nepalese art and architecture symbolizes unity amongst various ethnic groups and promotes the spirit of unity.
