We personally source and bring back to you unique quality products from Nepal and surrounding areas on our travels abroad. We support and purchase through local artisans, Fair Trade Organisations and Women's Project Groups which work to empower local women by providing skills and employment and in turn a better way of life.
Our love affair with Nepal started five years ago on a trekking adventure to Everest Base Camp. We knew then that we would be back for many more visits over the following years.
We are a business passionate about supporting various organisations that empower and enable the people that they support the opportunity to achieve a better life.
We support Fair Trade Practices and mostly Women’s Skill Organisations by the purchase of handmade artisan goods, which are then sold through our online shop as well as local markets. We also hand source unique treasures from local artisans in our travel overseas bringing new quality products back home regularly to provide a variety of choice for our regular clientele.
