Greetings from Tibet! We are from Lithang, which is situated in the eastern part of Tibet, China. Lying at the edge of a vast grassland valley, Litang is a historic town at an altitude of around 4,014 meters above sea level, even higher than Lhasa, which is why it is even known as a ‘town up in the air’. We are nomads and have been practicing animal husbandry for centuries.
We recently purchased an old house that will serve as a home base and workshop for our community project which grew up to become a social enterprise called "Kadhak Organics", which features all natural handmade home and beauty products. The house is critical to our cultural heritage, as its one of the only ones left in its original state in this area. We are determined to restore and continue to preserve it, as well as update it in order to grow our community-based business.
