Himalayan Rugs was founded by Mrs. Ang Lami Sherpa with a unique mission to produce fine quality hand knotted Nepalese rugs using age old traditional technique and to create an opportunity for rug enthusiasts to purchase outstanding artworks from anywhere in the world. After a successful launch of handicraft trading and rug manufacturing company for more than 15 years, she is inspired to establish a separate company, Himalayan Rugs, to focus only on the development and promotion of nature friendly handmade Nepalese rugs.

Therefore, Himalayan Rugs aims to create job opportunities to men and women from especially from unprivileged society of Nepal.
