about jawalakhel handicraft centre

Also known as Tibetan refugee camp, Jawalakhel Handicraft Center was set up in 1960. This Carpet Industry in Nepal houses around 1000 refugees who work as carpet makers here. initially, employing only few carpet weavers, this center has now turned into a massive weaving hall where hundred of weavers sit together and weave carpets quite conveniently and comfortably. The weavers are efficient and highly skilled craftsmen, who beautifully transform their skill into any traditional or contemporary design preferred in the western world. All the carpets are made from the finest hand spun Tibetan sheep wool, as it adds a soft and lustrous touch to the end product. Also, Carpets woven from Tibetan sheep wool stand for true Himalayan Heritage. Whether it is traditional, contemporary or Persian style, you can find all types of carpets.
