As such child labor is not tolerated. we visit the producers that we work with regularly to inspect production conditions and to maintain personal relationships with the craftsmen. We aim to ensure that products are made from sustainable and legal raw materials through carefully chosen suppliers. All shipping materials should be recyclable. We aim to recycle and re-use wherever possible and are supplied with green energy.
Nepal’s cultural craft heritage is particularly impressive considering the range of different crafts and the range of different culturally identifiable artisan communities. For example, Nepal is famous for its Wood Carving, Cotton Cloth, Nepalese paper, Tibetan Handicraft, Tibetan Incense, Buddhist and Hindu statue, woolen item and the particularly unique costumes and jewelry of Tibetan Design and Nepalese Design. These artistic traditions are sometimes divided into groups.
