In mid 2017, after returning from United Kingdom, i had a plan to run a marketplace in Nepal. At that time, online shopping was popular and Credit/debit card transactions, transfers from e-banking and digital wallets are becoming more prevalent, specially in urban areas. My thought was for selling Traditional skills like metal crafts, wood-carving, hemp items, thangka painting mainly Nepalese and Tibetan handmade items to the world. Till date, the skills have been handed down for centuries to coming generation there are skilled craftsmen who can make equally beautiful woodcarvings and intricate statues and indigenously crafted household items.
Nepal has a diverse range of handmade goods available. The most famous handmade products are carpets, thangka, Buddhist and Hindu statues, Mithila wall art, Nepalese paper, hand knitted woolen products, hand weaved clothing and other hemp-made items etc. Stone and metal figures, silver and gold knickknacks, and mind blowing wood carvings are another exceptional workmanship found in Nepal.
Thus, we three crafts enthusiastic guys decided to run an Artisan Marketplace - Vajracrafts.
Vajracrafts offers fair trade, eco-accommodating, craftsman made, natural items. To offer quality items that advance a way of life of living as one with one another. Large numbers of these items support native individuals who keep up with their antiquated insight and culture in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan.
