Ganesh Himal’s home décor selection includes beautiful hand-woven, hand block-printed placemats, table runners and floor mats, finely hand-pounded copperware, and a variety of other products designed to be functional, long lasting and easy to care for.
The majority of our home décor items are produced for us by a women’s development aid project in Kathmandu that is dedicated to enhancing the dignity of severely disadvantaged Nepali women. The project helps these women develop the skills necessary to earn a living as well as providing benefits such as welfare and retirement programs, warm meals, bonuses and a girl child education fund.
Some of our home décor items are made by a group of Tibetan monks living in exile in Kathmandu. These monks are seeking out fair trade business opportunities to help financially support their communities in exile and the refugees who flock to the monasteries daily.
