The Tashi Tagey Tibetan Women's Craft Center was established by Nyima Chungda to provide creative and employment oppurtunities for many Tibetan refugee women living in Sikkim. Thanks to the support of Dr. Khem Fatimi the Centre opened in January 2007.

Nyima Chungda is a skilled artisan in embroidery, knitting, tapestry and needlework. Nyima has exhibited in a number of fairs and is widely regarded for both her artistic skills and her teaching ability.

The Tashi Tagey Centre based in Gangtok, Sikkim, aims to reach Tibetan women a range of craft skills and to use these skills to produce items for sale. Hand knitted items, particularly sweaters and jackets, with traditional designs are a speciality of the Centre.
The Centre has more than 20 women drawn from surrounding villages, offering employment and training. Many of these women are elderly with little oppturnity for employment. The Centre provides both a small income and a valuable place for friendship and support.

By purchasing knitted items from the Centre you will be directly supporting these women and thier work.
