About Us

Welcome to Nepali Artisans!

Every item in our collection is handmade by women artisans from marginalized communities in Nepal. We source these products from profit and non-profit organizations in Nepal who support these women by providing training and employment opportunities. We give back a portion of the proceeds to these artisans and local non-profit organizations in Ohio. Hope you will enjoy these handmade products while continuing to make a difference!


When visiting Nepal in early 2019, I stumbled upon various hand-crafted products that were made by women artisans in and outside of the Kathmandu valley. These products were beautifully crafted and the perseverance and dedication put into creation of each product cannot be expressed in words. You need to see it and feel it to fall in love with it like I did. This is when it struck me that I can be promoting their work making it accessible to a wider and diverse community. That's when this company was born and aptly named "Nepali Artisans".

I have been involved in the creation and design of some products and am confident that consumers and enthusiasts like you would love and appreciate the beauty and individuality of these items. Not to mention, sales of these products gives an opportunity for these women to earn a stable income and empower them to be independent and established. The products speak for themselves in terms of quality and my intent is to simply promote them.

I used to participate in arts and craft shows and festivals to showcase them and will continue to do so when the time is right. Watch out for our blogs and the latest news and updates by signing up for our newsletter. We hope to continue to receive the overwhelming support and love from you all.
