Nyima Sangmo is the creator of our black Kyirong pangden. She is originally from Tibet, but she now lives in a Tibetan community near the northern border of Nepal with eight other families. Throughout the world, it is estimated that there are more than one hundred thousand Tibetans living outside of their homeland. Each of them has a story to tell. Nyima has lived in this community for more than thirty-two years and has been weaving for more than three decades. Through observing the women living among her she taught herself how to weave by hand. She earns income for her family by weaving. Nyima's loom is handcrafted, and her yarn is locally sourced. .
