Mahaguthi is a Fair Trade Organization which provides socio-economic empowerment to the people of Nepal. Our organization represents the efforts of more than one thousand individual producers 85% of whom are women. By promoting local artisans and their handicrafts, Mahaguthi is supporting the local economy, culture and livelihoods of people.
There are two Mahaguthi Outlets here in Kathmandu. Firstly, one is with the main office at Kupondole in the Lalitpur district and the other one is at Lazimpat in Kathmandu. These outlets are more than 30 years old and still in the run for selling all kinds of Nepalese crafts to the people across the world.
Here are the list of products available in our outlets:
- Pashmina and Cashmere accesories
- Home Decor and Textiles
- Handmade Paper, stationary and gifts,
- Singing Bowls and traditional metal crafts,
- Wood Carvings and Furniture,
- Wool, felt and cotton bags, gifts and accessories,
As being a member of Fair Trade, we make sure that all these products that are available are made by the Nepalese artisans. Furthermore, we practice, promote and advocate Fair Trade standards at a local, national and global market. We not only sell these products but also support our producers through various services and programs.
