Magic of Nepal
On the way to Everest...
Sky scraping peaks of the Himalayas
Gigantic sheer cliffs of the mountains reminisce of our insignificance and fragility faced with the raw power of nature.
The village of Lukla is accessible only by foot or helicopter.
The opulence of local yarns is intoxicating. Inspired by the beauty of ethnic textiles, I just want to sit with the locals and weave.
Spirits Of The Mountains.
I am madly in love with the art of Tanka. These paintings are made by Buddhist Monks. They are both a form of art and meditation. They are also a visual way to pass on Buddhist Mythology and their teachings.
The deep and vivid colors combined with incredibly meticulous drawings, unveil an ancient universe of pure magic.
Our Tibetan collection focuses on the use of different weaving methods and the unparalleled beauty of hand-dyed Tibetan yarns. Inspired by Nepal, we have used designs ranging from traditional Tibetan to artistic abstracts. Exotic yarns such as Handspun-Silk, Aloe, and Tibetan Wool are used to create an unforgettable mosaic of different styles and genres. A true reflection of J.D. Staron's creativity.

Home away from home.
I visit Nepal at least twice a year and have done so for the past 20 years. My stay in Kathmandu is always the highlight of my trips. I love sitting with the locals at the looms and experimenting with different yarns and weaving techniques.
An incredible variety of materials, combined with the artistry of local masters is impossible to find anywhere else in the world.
Kathmandu is my favorite place to create the most innovative textiles.
