Peple in Dolpo Have had trades with tibet since early times. They used to carry straw rice bags and wool in the direction of Tibet and buying back home rock, salt instead. Nowadays goods inside the bag have changed with the times.
The painting is from our world renown artist Mr. Tenzin Norbu who hails from a long lineage of painters from the remote Dolpo region of Nepal, his paintings depict local myths, history and the lifestyle of the people living in the High Himalayas.

Reference the specific item care on the product tag for specific washing, cleaning and care instructions. Many of our knitted items are made of animal fiber like wool and alpaca, which means that agitation while washing can cause the fabric to “felt,” or merge together to form a stiff, tight fabric. DO NOT machine wash these pieces. In general, you should gently hand wash the piece in cool, soapy water using a mild detergent or baby shampoo. Carefully swirl the knitted piece around in the water – never wring, twist or pull on the wet item. To dry, carefully lay the item out flat on a towel and blot to remove excess water, being careful not to stretch.
