Why buy from Gopali?
I grew up in the Himalayan country of Nepal, so I have a direct relationship with the artists and artisans who make the products that I import and sell.
I come from a family where my grandfather, himself, made baskets, shoes, mats, and other items by hand. My mother and aunts made beautiful winter and summer clothes for both men and women, also by hand.
My dream is to keep these wonderful “true” Himalayan arts and crafts alive, as well as providing opportunities for better lives and education by helping local Himalayan and Tibetan families keep up their great art and crafts skills alive by buying the products directly from them and encouraging them.
I only carry quality, meaningful, unique products which I import directly from the people who made them.
