Artisan: Nepali Jewelry & Handicraft Artisans

Artisan Nepali Jewelry & Handicraft Artisans

Subhas Gurju is part of an artisan cooperative in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. Born in the historic city of Lalitpur, which means 'city of fine arts,' Subhas is part of a community of craftspeople who have learned family craft traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Subhas learned the art of jewelry making from his father, who learned it from Subhas's grandfather. Subhas is a skilled jewelry artisan, but like many other artisans, was limited to selling his wares in the local market. With the help of the cooperative, Subhas has gained international exposure and has greatly increased his income, allowing him to support his family and his parents.

The cooperative helps artisans living in small villages throughout the region market their products on a much larger scale. Most artisans are Newar, the indigenous people of Nepal, and are known for their beautiful workmanship and fine arts. All products are made by hand without the use of modern machines or technology, reflecting the quality craftsmanship of a bygone era. Earnings from their handicrafts help not only their own families, but the entire community.

Since Nepal is a multilingual country with over 70 languages, it is rare for children to receive schooling in their native language. Due to the language barrier, many children were avoiding school or dropping out early because they didn't understand the language used. To remedy the problem, this artisan cooperative developed a school that educates children in their mother tongue, giving the children a better chance of understanding the teachings, and hopefully, a more comprehensive education. The Modern New English School also places an emphasis on learning English and hopes to raise literacy rates in Nepal. They've established similar schools in small villages around the country, paving a brighter future for many children.
