Nepal is a multi-ethnic, landlocked central Himalayan country in South Asia. Bordering China in the north and India in the south, east, and
west, it is the largest sovereign Himalayan state. Nepal is also considered as a 3rd world country. Up until 1990, Nepal was a monarchy
under executive control of the King. Faced with a communist movement against absolute monarchy, King Birendra, in 1990, agreed to a
large-scale political reform with the king as the head of state and a prime minister as the head of the government.
Nepal has seen rapid political changes in the past two decades. Since then the country has faced political instability, economic degradation,
cultural decline and Massacre of the royal family; yes the king and his family was massacred in 1st June 2001 by unknown assailants. The
massacre mystery has not been solved to this day and the people have even forgotten this horrible tragedy and moved on with their lives.
Many believe this misfortune has cumulated to the downfall of the country, government and Nepali society as a whole.
Sumukhi, is a handicraft company based in Kathmandu, Nepal. We draw inspiration and encouragement from our rich history and cultures of
past. Nepal was not always a down trodden country like we see today; for more than a millennia (3rd CE – 17th) Nepal was considered a
prosperous, cultural and economic hub of the region, with a variety of philosophies and people settling here, creating a seem less melting pot
of culture and civilization. The cultures of art, paintings, architecture, and sculpture, songs and mythologies of our ancestors still remain
strong in the hearts of Nepali people, and we as a manufacturing company intend to raise morale and self-esteem of Nepal by merging
traditional designs with modern convenience and practicality and showcasing our creations to the world, hoping to raise awareness about our
modest little country.
