Working in many stressful management positions throughout the years, I often dreamed I’d someday own my own business.
While living in Nepal, where my husband’s career took us, I loved shopping for unique pieces. Before leaving the country in 2005, it occurred to me that I could import Nepalese jewelry and cashmere, which would also help some of the people. My company is called KVS Pasal; the initials represent me and my two daughters, and Pasal means store in Nepali.
Much of the sterling silver, handcrafted jewelry is one-of-a-kind, and the cashmere is handwoven.
