Carpets made by hand
All our carpets are produced in the traditional hand knotted method in the company of our co-founders, Tashi Lama’s uncle. This gives an insight in the whole process of carpet manufacturing. Carpet making is an art and traditional craft that originally found its way from Tibet to Nepal. Today, Nepal is one of the most important hand knotted carpet manufacturers. Our carpet production in Nepal has 90 employees, most of them women. The accommodation, clean drinking water and electricity are provided within the factory premises and funded by the company. There is a day care center on the premises and the school for all children is funded by the carpet production. A dedicated partner for manufacturing carpets.
