Nepal Traditional Crafts was established in 1964. It was the first company registered under the Department of Industry, specialising in the production and export of Nepalese handicrafts. By doing so Nepal Traditional Crafts provides jobs for a large network of low–income producer groups and economically underprivileged people in Nepal, and helps keep the traditional crafts of the region alive. Artisans receive fair prices, medical benefits, loans, paid leave, retirement benefits, children’s scholarships and skill development training. 

With the growth of mass production, traditional Nepali crafts were starting to die out. As a result of export markets for their handicrafts, artisans have a life of greater dignity, and some have been able to develop their own self-sustaining businesses.
