ABOUT US

A Canadian-Tibetan born in Nepal, Phurbu’s lifetime of of knowledge of Tibetan handicrafts and the artisans who create them gives him a unique perspective when choosing products and papers. Trained in the art of handmade paper in Kathmandu, Phurbu brings his love and knowledge of the craft when selecting papers for the store. Working closely with local Tibetan & Nepalese artists has been a huge inspiration to him. Since Tibetan Paper and Handicraft imports directly from Nepal and India, we can provide you with environmentally friendly, fair trade certified products of the highest quality at very reasonable prices in wholesale and retail business levels. Our close link to the artisans who create our products allows us to ensure that they are fairly compensated and that no child labour is used in the creation of any item.
