Nepalese silversmiths exhibit for the first time at Munich’s Inhorgenta Exhibition

From 20 to 23 February 2015, eleven jewellery manufacturers from Nepal will be showing their hand-crafted collections for the first time in the Nepalese Pavilion at Munich’s Inhorgenta Exhibition.

Nepal has a rich and vibrant tradition of jewellery making, which is one of the country’s most important crafts. The artisans exhibiting in Munich preserve the character of Nepalese art and culture and translate this into modern designs. The highly qualified silversmiths who will be present at the exhibition will also be happy to produce customised pieces on request.
The silver jewellery sector has traditionally been an important source of income for many families. The Nepalese-German trade promotion initiative thus aims to ensure fair pay for local artisans as well as to help them tap new markets. The initiative is supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). By participating in Inhorgenta, the Nepalese jewellery sector aims to show what it has to offer compared to international competitors, and establish new business contacts.
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federal enterprise with worldwide operations. It supports the German Government in the fields of international cooperation for sustainable development and international education. GIZ helps individuals and societies to develop their own prospects and improve their living conditions.
