ནོར་བུ Norboo means “jewel” or “precious” in Tibetan and is a name quite common amont the Tibetan boys. As in most cases… it all started with a dream. When we visited Qinghai in 2007, we fell in love with the land and it’s people. The next year we decided to move to Xining.


From the beginning we wanted to turn our hobbies and giftings into a profitable business, not only to support ourselves, but also to help bring community development – primarily through training young people in various practical skills.

More than that, we wanted to help communities in remote areas, teaching them how to use the resources that are available to them, and to create original, high quality products that express the joy we have found in this place and in these people.
