Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade
After the massive earthquakes that tragically struck Nepal in 2015, the people of Nepal are still struggling to heal emotionally and physically.
Relief workers in Kathmandu have told us that one of the most important things we can do to help Nepalese families regain a sense of normalcy is to provide trade so that people can once again wake up in the morning and go to work. We encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.
DharmaCrafts has committed to donate 5% of the sales revenue of all Nepalese products throughout 2015 and 2016 to earthquake relief efforts. A large percentage of our donation will go to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center. Upaya's example of engaged Buddhism is inspirational to us and to our efforts. DharmaCrafts will also contribute to the Save the Children Fund.

Did you know?
Our "Bodhi" Leaf flower lights are a sustainable, eco-friendly plant product made from REAL leaves. Village farmers in Thailand collect rubber tree leaves and soak them in the river to loosen the fleshy part of the leaf. The fleshy portion is carefully rubbed away, leaving only the delicate leaf skeleton. Eight leaf skeletons are wrapped onto each light to create a beautiful flower. The soft, luminous glow of this natural leaf lighting cannot be replicated with synthetic materials.
Every step of creating these beautiful garlands of luminous, translucent flowers is done by hand. And, because village farmers earn a living from this plant-to-product process, trees that would normally be harvested for income are now being protected to ensure a continual supply of natural resources and a viable source of income for the villagers.
