'Door to the Himalayas' was established in 2007 to promote the creative talents of Himalayan craftsmen and women to people who love handloom products and appreciate the skills involved in hand-spinning, weaving and embroidery.

Working with the principle of fair trade, Door to the Himalayas aims to improve the lives of these craftspeople, both financially through trade and also in celebrating and promoting their skills, in the hope that they will continue to be passed from generation to generation.
