A personal thank you from the women of Samunnat in their own words.


Read Sharmila's "thank you" and know that your purchase matters.

We are so touched by the ladies comments and we love this photo so much that we plan to have post cards made up soon.  We have more photos and will rotate them on our site.

Thanks to all who helped Samunnat to build their new work shop - the Women have finally moved in!


The women of Samunnat would like to thank all of you for your donations, purchases and continued support.

The following is a quote from Samunnat's Blog ' We just love that our Samunnat board hangs high and proud in the place it can stay now for a long while we hope!!!   We adore our new workroom, with lots of windows, which is light and airy.  When it is Winter and the days are short and the electricity goes off, this will be a boon.   Our kitchen is so beautiful.   Again, it is full of light with a tap from which water flows!  Shots of a toilet may be inappropriate for a family blog but we have one and it is inside!  We have a friendly and welcoming office which allows ladies privacy when they talk about their problems.   We are excited and happy. I think you can tell!!!'




The Samunnat Story

We are excited to announce a new exclusive partnership with "Samunnat," a truly wonderful and gifted group of women in Nepal. Samunnat, a non-profit organization, was formed as a much-needed resource to assist the many Nepalese women who are the victims of domestic violence. These women produce some of the most beautifully-detailed hand-crafted polymer clay beads we've ever seen. We immediately knew we had to do our part to help usher these beads into the world in a larger way.
