In many cases, we manufacture goods with our own directly-employed workers.  Our work relationship in Nepal is ongoing year-round--we essentially have a full-time manager in Kathmandu to negotiate and maintain contact with workers, to collect goods, pay workers, and to check quality.  We have product development trips a couple times a year as well.  
In many cases, as with raw silk items, we buy the raw material directly and supply it to knitters and weavers whom we employ in cottage industry or small handicraft factory situations. Workers are paid fairly in Nepal, at the time goods are delivered usually.  We then import to the USA and wholesale handicrafts nationally and internationally.  For twelve years, the ongoing regular nature of our business has helped support the handicrafts industry of Nepal by supplying work and jobs.  This industry and tourism were the two biggest industries in Nepal.
