  Advance Order Knitwear


Our producers in Nepal rely on getting your advance orders early so they have enough time to make what you need. The sooner you get your advance order to us, the better chance you will have of getting EXACTLY what you want and the more time our producers will have to make their beautiful products.


Know that these Advance Order Products are made just for you, so you must honor your order. Please keep the following in mind when you make your order:


1. Shipping Dates:

Order by April 30th to receive your knits between August 15th-October 1st.

Order by June 1st to receive your knits between October 1st-December 15th.


2. You may request more than one ship date to receive your knits, but for each ship date, you must CREATE A NEW ORDER. Please include the ship date in the "comments" section at the very end of the shopping cart check out.


3. Please do not combine a regular order with your knit advance orders. You may place advance orders for any of our products separately.  


*This information can be found on our website under the KNITS section in the store.

Our new website and online ordering is ready to make your life easier. We have worked very hard to develop a website that will make ordering Ganesh Himal Trading products online simple and quick. Our new website will be your resource for:

-All Ganesh Himal Trading products, including new products as they arrive

-Important advance ordering deadlines

-Wholesale policies, shipping dates, price changes

-Product information, videos, artisan stories (to come)

-Helpful fair trade information & tips

Don't worry, we still value our one on one customer service and know that you do too, so this new system will not replace that! Hopefully, it will help save time in ordering and allow you to see the breadth of our products.

Help Build a New Producer Workshop!



One of the Association for Craft Producer's (ACP) weaving groups needs to rebuild their workshop and Ganesh Himal has agreed to help! Bhagwati's women's group weaves all of our recycled silk runners and placemats, blockprint runners and more. Their workshop is old and ramshackle and we'd like to help them rebuild so that they have a great space to work in.  


Ganesh Himal invites you to help us! We are committed to raising $2500 by June 1. Ganesh Himal will give $1250 and we'd like to raise the rest from the stores we sell to across North America. If 10 stores raised $125 we'd have it made. If 20 stores raised $60 we'd have it made. If 40 stores gave just $35 we'd be there!  


You will find a donation button on our website (under projects in the shopping cart) where you can add a donation for the Bhagwati Fund. 100% of your stores donation will go to the rebuilding of their workshop. This is a great group of women and they deserve a great place to work. When we are done we'd like to send a photo of everyone who donated so they can hang it on their new workshop wall!


Jewelry Prices





Due to a 100% increase of the price of silver in Nepal, our jewelry prices have gone up. We still have a wide range of beautiful jewelry in all different price points,
