Jawalakhel Handicraft Center, the pioneer Tibetan Carpet industry in Nepal
popularly known as Tibetan refugee camp was set up in 1960 under the initiative
of International Red Cross and Swiss Development Corporation (S.D.C.) then
know as Swiss Aid for Technical Assistance (S.A.T.A.) in co-operation with
His Majesty's Government of Nepal. Its main objective is to help the Tibetan
refugee to do something nice and support themselves.
This factory established with a very limited resources in 1960 has made
a tremendous progress fully run by the most active Tibetan community in
Nepal has been providing jobs to hundreds of Tibetan refugee families.
The only way to get rid of poverty is to work hard indeed. So work is
the first worship we always honor. We have worked hard enough to make
our fellow Tibetans economically self-reliant. We are still doing our
level best to help the needy and poor of our community. As a matter of
fact it took more than three decades for us to bring this industry into
the present stage.
This factory begun with six little shades for few carpet weavers to work
has now a huge weaving hall where hundreds of weavers can sit and weave
carpets in a very comfortable manner.
We are very proud to say that our factory has never used the child labor.
It has rather used the major portion of its earning for the various community
development services such as the medical care of the aged and handicapped
people, food and shelter for the poor and needy, education for the workers'
children and so on.
We are also very proud to say that this factory has played a very important
role in developing the traditional skill of weaving beautiful carpets
and spread it almost all over Nepal. We use only the best quality Tibetan
sheep wool for weaving the choice carpets of your taste. We take order
for manufacturing carpets of any size and shape in any shade you like.
However we have set up a tradition to export only the best we produce.

Industry of Nepal. We are highly reputed world-wide exporter and wholesaler
