Mahaguthi Craft with Conscience is a Fair Trade Organization which produces, markets and exports Nepalese crafts. Mahaguthi serves both the domestic and international markets and has two shops based in the Kathmandu Valley. The organization represents the efforts of more than one thousand individual producers, fifty percent of whom are from remote and mountainous areas. Many of their producers are women who are given the chance to employ traditional skills in their own homes, thus enabling them to generate extra income. In addition, some 40 percent of the income generated by this organization provides artisan and their children with training, food, shelter, clothing, health care and education.
