Woodblock printing is an ancient Nepalese art form that we at Ganesh Himal Trading strive to use as often as possible in the hopes of preserving this beautiful craft. We have partnered with Ram Shekhar who has a very small business in which he personally carves each wood block, and stamps each design, producing many of GHT’s block printed bags, hats and wallets for nearly 30 years.
Ram’s home was badly damaged by the earthquake on April 25, 2015 and his entire family was relocated to a tent for several months but unfortunately at 5am one morning they awoke to water pouring into their tents which quickly rose to their necks. They were flooded out of that place so that he and his family had no choice but to move back into their damaged home.
