New shop focusing on Himalayan Arts opens at The Bluecoat

The Bluecoat has welcomed family business Lalligrass to its creative community - a new shop specialising in the arts and crafts of the Himalayas.

The pieces Lalligrass have on offer have deep religious or cultural value with each item being made and produced by artists and artisans in the Himalayas.

Adam Nugent, Lalligrass Director said: We are a family business. One of the directors, Jay, lives in the foothills of the Himalayas with his Nepali wife Rama. And many of our suppliers are good friends of Jay and Rama, such as the Tibetan refugees who produce our hand made rugs and Dinesh who teaches deaf Nepalis to make beautiful pashminas.

Lalligrass is also importing Thangkas (Buddhist paintings) and brass and wooden carvings.

We are conscious of our responsibilities to our producers, especially as some of them are charitable organisations. We make sure that they receive a good price for their hard work and we are always on the lookout for worthwhile charitable groups and small family workshops to support."

“If you buy one of our pieces you will own something very special: a display piece that has been made in the Himalayas by artists and expert crafts people using traditional methods.”
