Jawalakhel Handicraft Center, the pioneer Tibetan Carpet industry in Nepal popularly known as Tibetan refugee camp was set up in 1960 under the initiative of International Red Cross and Swiss Development Corporation (S.D.C.) then know as Swiss Aid for Technical Assistance (S.A.T.A.) in co-operation with His Majesty's Government of Nepal. Its main objective is to help the Tibetan refugee to do something nice and support themselves.

This factory established with a very limited resources in 1960 has made a tremendous progress fully run by the most active Tibetan community in Nepal has been providing jobs to hundreds of Tibetan refugee families. The only way to get rid of poverty is to work hard indeed. So work is the first worship we always honor. We have worked hard enough to make our fellow Tibetans economically self-reliant. We are still doing our level best to help the needy and poor of our community. As a matter of fact it took more than three decades for us to bring this industry into the present stage.

This factory begun with six little shades for few carpet weavers to work has now a huge weaving hall where hundreds of weavers can sit and weave carpets in a very comfortable manner.

The carpet weavers we have are all highly skilled craftsmen who though very strict to their traditional weaving can switch their skill into any contemporary design popular in the western world. They know exactly how to tune their craftsmanship to the taste of their customers. As a matter of fact each of the carpet they weave with the finest hand spun Tibetan sheep wool represents a true Himalayan heritage indeed.

Something very special about the Tibetan sheep wool is its unique luster and softness. The high mountain environment and the typical characteristics of high Tibetan plateau interestingly enough seem to allow the sheep to have most outstanding cold resistant wool which give Tibetan carpets a very elegant look.
