Want beautiful gifts for loved ones or something special for you or your home? Visit Woven in Lakeside. The quality and price of products here is excellent and top quality. I bought a sheep's wool and cotton blanket (quite fluffy prior to first wash) and...More

We kept on finding ourselves here every time we're in Lakeside area of Pokhara. Their products have such great designs and quality, even better than the other shops you see in Nepal. I bought my new favorite scarf and daily bag here. All items are...More

the products are relatively better designs and quality to those you find on the main street and even from Themal, Kathmandu. Worth to have a look if you are interested in weave-woven stylish bags. You are also contributing to help women in this country for...More

All items are fixed priced and great quality. Designs are modern and practical. I picked up pretty much all my souvenirs here. There's also a shop in the Pokhara airport that sells their items - but at double the price. Be aware!

Walking the main drag in Lakeside can be unpleasant because of the pressure from salespeople. I am so glad I found this store where I could browse at leisure, as well as watch a weaver with a back strap loom.

First of all: don't bargain here. You have to understand that you're paying more for the Fair Trade factor and that's exactly why you should buy here. I bought a lovely little bag for 1600 and it's was worth every penny. Amazing quality and very...More
