Treasure from the Himalayas
The Himalayas is the greatest mountain range of all; spanning 2,400 kilometers from Bhutan to Afghanistan. This is a region of astonishing natural and cultural diversity, where the Tibetan Buddhism of the arid north meets the lush valleys and plains of the Hindu and Muslim lowlands.
Kaligarh is a company that pays tribute to the ancient and contemporary art and artisans of the Himalayan region. Their jewelry collection, plays with motifs and designs inherited from past generations, re-crafting them into new forms of must- have accessories.
Each Kaligarh product is handmade by small-scale artisans in Nepal and elsewhere in the Himalaya. Most of these small-scale artisans work independently, in their homes or in small workshops tucked away in the alleys of old towns in the Kathmandu Valley. These are a vanishing breed of craftspeople as many younger generations now seek work in cities such as Katmandu instead of learning these ancient crafts at home.
Due to the fact that the communities of the Himalayan region are especially vulnerable to environmental change, sustainability is key to Kaligarh?s ethos and production strategy. Even their packaging is made from Nepali handmade paper produced from the bark of the lokta plant.
This collection is perfect for those on the hunt for unique ethical jewels that tell a story of an ancient land of majesty and beauty. These are modern heirlooms that will never go out of style and should be passed from one generation to the next.
