About Us

WE ARE INSPIRED BY BHUTAN

We are inspired by DrukYul, the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. By its beautiful landscape, spiritual traditions, sophisticated craftsmanship, and wonderful minds.

With the help of friends of Bhutan across the globe,

we support talented local artists, designers, craftspeople, and entrepreneurs who are from Bhutan or inspired by Bhutan

to hand-craft and sell their original premium products worldwide.

We do it passionately, friendly, and sustainably while creating a global community of true friends of Bhutan.

We get you connected to Bhutan through the talents we highlight. Talents from Bhutan and talents who are living in other countries, but inspired by Bhutan: artists, designers, craftspeople, and entrepreneurs. They are all skilled, motivated, and have a dream. They simply need some support of global friends of Bhutan to realise their great creative potential.

OUR TALENTS

We regularly promote new talents throughout the year. Our first talent is Chandrika Tamang, pioneer fashion designer from Bhutan, founder of the CDK brand. Our next talent to come soon will be a contemporary artist. 

How can YOU support our talents? In several ways:

DONATING smaller or larger amounts that help them realise their dream projects - and support their community. Give via our Donation Platform. 

BUYING their high quality hand-crafted products, all are inspired by Bhutan, exclusively available online in our 'Inspired by Bhutan' Store.

PROMOTING them by sharing their inspiring stories with your friends and the world. 

NOMINATING talented artists, designers, craftspeople, and entrepreneurs to become part of the 'Inspired by Bhutan' family. They can be located either in Bhutan or elsewhere. If they are non-Bhutanese, their dream project must be inspired by or connected to Bhutan. (i.e. a fashion designer in Singapore or London can apply for our support for a special collection inspired by Bhutan). Nominate via email.
