Thank you Nepal for another amazing adventure!
Our March 2020 tour was simply delightful! I was blessed with another group of amazing ladies who embraced each day with such enthusiasm and open hearts!
We all returned home safely, missing the flight suspensions thankfully and having plenty of time for reflection during our 14 day home isolation due to the Corona virus.
I am continually overwhelmed by the magic that Nepal offers. I trust that as soon as the world has recovered from this uncertain time, I will be continuing to host small groups to the home of my heart.
JOURNEY TO NEPAL WITH JOH!

Kutumba is kinsfolk in Nepali
Kutumba supports social enterprises and small family businesses that empower, employ and enrich artisans via the ethical trade of their exquisite, unique handicrafts.
We are passionate about sustaining traditional skills of ancient crafts whilst promoting contemporary designs made with repurposed waste materials.
We are blessed to hand pick our treasures direct from the source in our homeland Nepal.
Sharing the Love
So many of you have asked over the years and now I am super chuffed to share with you this amazing recipe of the Raw Carrot Cake we used to serve in store and now serve from time to time in our creative workshops!
Many years ago, my best friend would make this delicious treat regularly and we would enjoy a slice with a cup of tea at our catch-ups. Dilli and I then began serving in our store in Largs Bay to complement our Masala Chiyaa and Nepali Coffee.
The chewy carrot layer with the lemony cashew cream is a hit with all who taste it!
CatarAct of Kindness Project
Through the sales of generously donated books we have funded 30 cataract surgeries in Nepal!
Our good friends at Himalayan Quests Foundation have changed the lives of thousands in remote rural areas of Nepal at their annual free health clinics. Volunteer local and international medical professionals provide otherwise unattainable services in general health, eyes, dental, women's health and physiotherapy.
We are so honoured to have the support of our local community to give the gift of sight.
Here are some of the recipients post surgery recently, as a part of the May 2018 Health Camp.
