We are the authorized distributor for Samunnat beads. Samunnat is a non-profit organization which assists Nepalese women who are affected by domestic violence. Each bead is a gift, and a story of one woman's life.
Check out the wonderful article Kerrie Slade, blogger for Bead & Button Magazine, posted about her discovery of Kazuri Kenya beads Kenya and Samunnat clay beads made in Nepal.
