About
We are a trainingcenter for Tibetan women and produce handicrafts mainly made of yak wool, sheep wool, sheep wool felt and the beautiful Tibetan brocade fabrics. We want to keep old Tibetan handicraft Traditions alive but also make practical, good quality and fusion styled items such as all kind of small and big bags, computer covers, pillow cases, dish sets, tablerunners, dolls, slippers,jewerly and more. All profit goes back into training more Tibetan women. After the training program they are able to open their own sewing shop back home in their villages but also can chose to keep produce for DYH.
Duration: 1-2 hours

Hand made products at a reasonable price. I like the value behind them that young ladies with less opportunity for higher education can get a training here and be able to continue to support themselves and their family in the future. It's in the heart of the Tibetan area and near the popular Jinli street so a good area to visit for a half or full day. Full marks to the owner, staff and trainees.

If you’re traveling through Chengdu, this shop is a must see for a wide variety of gift ideas for those at home! My husband and I bought something for everyone, from refrigerator magnets of the Tibetan landscape to beautifully crafted purses and pillowcases. This store provided quality, unique products that didn’t weigh a ton in our suitcase back to the U.S., and everybody loved them! I put in a little flyer from the store with each gift so they knew how special these handmade items were. Big hit!

I was so happy to find this shop! It has really unique purses and bags. Some of them made of handwoven yak wool. That's really a great gift when you don't want to have an other generic souvenir.
It's absolutely worth while going there!

Great place to pick up beautifully made, uniquely handcrafted gifts. Her workshop about the handicrafts is really interesting. I learned a lot about the history and culture in just a short time, and it was fun to try my hand at one of the crafts.

An amazing shop with friendly staff full of great souvenirs and gifts to take home. And what is even more awesome is that by buying there you actually support local people. Loved it!
