Kathmandu Imports was established in 1985 in Berkeley, California. We were the first retail store from the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal to open in the East Bay. In the subsequent years, we expanded our business to include three locations throughout the East Bay. In 2004, Kathmandu Imports became incorporated as Kathmandu Inc. To branch out into the online and wholesale market, Kathmandu Treasures was formed. Our many products from the Himalayas include: Clothing (in many different types, styles, fabrics, and textures), felt items, meditation supplies, paintings, statues, silver & metal jewelry, furniture and much more. Our mission is to expose the Nepalese culture through distribution of beautifully handcrafted arts and goods.
At Kathmandu Inc., we strongly support fair trade ethics and child free labor.
