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.
It is with much sadness that we will be closing down our brick n mortar store. It has been a terribly difficult decision to make, after 6 years of devoting so much time, love and care into our beautiful space. The pressures of increasing costs and efforts to sustain a successful brick and mortar store have become too much for our small family business. We will be continuing to sell online, adding a wholesale range and focusing on sharing our love for Nepal with our Nepal tours! Find out more here! Joh will host her popular Nepali cooking classes at venues around South Australia and offering her Masala Chiyaa to like-minded outlets and cafes. The most important part of this new direction for Kutumba is the flexibility it offers to spend more time with our children.
We will be trading until early May. Workshops will run as scheduled until our closure. We are offering a 30% off stock clearance discount in store.
Please pop in to say goodbye. Our hearts are heavy with gratitude for your support. xxx
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.
