Artisan Story

At the heart of Ganesh Himal Trading is long term partnerships that empower each partner. They are committed to respectful and long term partnerships with:

  • the families, businesses, and projects that they partnered with over 30 years, prioritizing them by securing their work before adding new producer groups,
  • Their staff in Spokane and in Nepal providing work that enhances their security, growth, and well being,
  • Their retail partners, many of whom have been customers for over twenty years,
  • Our planet, which gives without question and deserves the same care in return,

They believe that building long lasting relationships based on trust, dialogue and mutual respect is key to community building and helps move us toward a more equitable future.

Striving for economic justice is where their business began. When Ganesh Himal Trading was established, they decided to seek out producer groups that worked with marginalized individuals (e.g. women and Tibetan refugees) so they could gain access to trading relationships for economic mobility. This has led to years of partnering with women producers to co-create a world where women have control over their money, are empowered to make their own decisions and have a respected voice in all discussions. Overall, they believe that trade is interrelational and that access to trading relationships is key to enhancing people’s lives and traditions. THey have also committed to facilitating solutions to other economic barriers (i.e. healthcare, education) through their non-profit, Conscious Connections Foundation.
