Chandra

Chandra is a small crafts workshop just outside of Bhaktapur where magical things happen…

About a dozen women, two handicapped people and Mr. Sanu, Sanu Dai to us, work there. Sanu Dai is a man with a great heart, an entrepreneur and a fighter, who wants to change the world from his small workshop… And he’s doing it! On the walls we can see signs saying “Children labor is the path to hell”, “Don’t let them tell you, read the paper” or “Smile, please”… To work in such a nice environment and following these principles is deserving of great recognition! They are trying to get the WFTO’s stamp, and our experience with them tells us they really deserve it… we’re sure they’ll get it!

In this workshop there is clothing manufacture, organic rice paper crafting and printing and natural incense elaboration. Nothing at all! Everything they do following crafting methods, the fair trade principles and with very high quality standards. They’ve won a few creativity in fair trade awards and they are partners with Sana Hastakala.
