Shangri-La Crafts and Gifts is a small business run by a Tibetan family in Mounds View, Minnesota. Before moving to the United States, I worked in an exports company in Nepal for more than 15 years, helping customers (importers) find different merchandise and doing quality control for them. My past experience and contacts with artisans - grass root suppliers in Nepal and India helped me to bring high-quality products, yet reasonably priced to my customers in United States.
It ll started 3 years ago in August 2015, when my good friend gave me a small singing bowl as a gift. It was beautiful but very poor quality thus hard to make it sing. He told me he bought the bowl online and I started looking for Singing bowl online. To my surprises I found many cheap qualities made in China and the ones with good quality highly overpriced. That is when I decided to start my own business beginning of 2017. It was financially not possible for me to open a store, so I started at craft shows, street fairs and other shows. People responded well to my products, prices and services. With your support and our hard work, we now launched our online shopping site.
I also thank my family for their support, specially my girl friend and my 10 years old daughter, who help me manage the inventory, opening boxes from Nepal/India etc.
We carry all kind of genuine Tibetan singing bowls, Jewelry, Clothing, Bags and handicrafts from the Himalayan region. We always buy our products directly from small family run businesses and artisans in Nepal.
We thank you for visiting our site and we hope you like our product as much as we do. If you have any suggestion or did not find the product you looking for, please email us.
Tashi Delek/Namaste from our family.
