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.

Care of your Kumihimo Cord
Treat the cord as you would a silk garment. Avoid getting the cord wet as much as possible (do not wear in the shower). If necessary, you may hand wash the cord with cold water and a drop of silk detergent. Rinse and completely dry before wearing.
Kristina Kada's art studio rests amid the quiet redwoods in the mountains of Santa Cruz. Inspired by her surroundings, her Japanese heritage, and the many shapes found in botanical forms and architecture, Kristina layers simple elements in repetition to build up richly textured patterns and produce interesting forms. Her classic jewelry techniques employ steel stakes, saw piercing and a hydraulic press to meld freehand elements with original castings.
