Sana Hastakala, which means “small handicrafts” in Nepali, marries traditional craft skills with modern techniques—and the results are spectacular, ranging from plates to planters, from pillows to egg warmers. Whether you have an empty stomach, a green thumb, or heavy eyelids, Sana Hastakala is the solution.
All of the handmade products are crafted at Sana Hastakala or created by 60 small-scale producers, projects, and organizations across Nepal. A member of the World Fair Trade Organization, Sana Hastakala was established in 1989 with the support of UNICEF. Now its ready-to-ship, made-to-order and custom-made designs come in polka dots, herringbone and floral, shaped from bamboo, clay and cotton. Whatever your style, you can enhance it with Sana Hastakala’s products while the artisans—mostly women—achieve sustainable livelihoods.
