Happy Nepali New Year 2078

From all of us at Karnor, we wish you a very happy Nepali New Year 2078. April 13 marked the new year 2078 in the Nepali Vikram Samvat calendar. The Tibetan rug craft has a centuries-old history, but the Tibetan rug industry as we know it today is intrinsically connected with Nepal. The Tibetan carpet boom in Nepal started after the Swiss Government helped Tibetan refugees establish rug production and export facilities in the 1970s. Nepal is also an ideal location for rug production due to her moderate weather, allowing rug production to continue unhampered through the year. In return, the carpet industry continues to be a major sector contributing to Nepal’s GDP and employment, having exported $69 million worth of rugs in 2019.
