Khlapsang Karpo Women Recycled Handcrafts
Due to its remote location, Ganesh Himal Trading had to be creative with the raw materials used for products made by this group. All scraps of sari fabric and beads are transported on the backs of the villagers over a two day mountain trek to their community. Lack of tools and electricity create another obstacle to producing products. Determined to provide economic opportunity to women in this village following the devastating earthquake of April 2015, Ganesh Himal Trading combined simple skill with beautiful detail to make this one of a kind wearable art.
“Namaste, I would like to thanks for order necklaces. Our women life story is in Sertung women are maximum uneducated but they are everyday hard working. They do old type of farming and after planting they wait six month to get the crop.They have no [income generating] work. They are after earthquake live in small trap. This recycle necklace made them if you buy continue this necklace they get good incoming job.and help thier child study.” -Yogendra
