Meet Dechen…

Born and raised in Nepal, I became the first woman from Solu Khumbu (Sherpa Village) to earn a Master’s degree from an American University in 1999.

My dedication to share my creative designs on boutique quality shawls & scarves have been featured in the business sections of the Contra Costa Times, The Black Diamond Magazine and other publications.

I am passionate about building meaningful connections.  It gives me tremendous joy to connect the sophisticated fashion and art lovers of the San Francisco Bay Area to the talented artisans from Nepal.  My vision is to build a strong relationship based family business that supports ethically traded quality products.

I believe elegance is a way of life and that elegance is the inner beauty which never fades.

I currently live in Walnut Creek with my family.

Be sure to visit us at our fun Special Events and/or at our monthly Pop up Trunk Shows at Berkeley’s iconic Claremont Club & Spa, a Fairmont Hotel.   Check our Shopping Events section and save the dates to visit us soon.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
