Ballard’s first Nepali handcraft store is now open at 1708 NW Market St.
Himalayan Treasure opened last week and aims to provide Ballard with one-of-a-kind expertly crafted items from Nepal.
The new store specializes in Buddhist Thanka paintings (pictured below), expertly crafted copper statues, enchanting singing bowls, incense laced with Himalayan herbs, silver jewelry, and varieties of hand oven bags, and felted items by a women’s group in Nepal.
“Himalayan Treasure is eager to add to and enhance collections with our one of a kind art and we want to introduce our first class tailored services,” says manager Sushil Mulepati.
The store also contains a meditation room where customers have the chance to get away from their busy lives and reflect.
Mulepati is offering 20% off everything in the store until the end of the month to celebrate the grand opening.
