Nepali handicrafts and gongs

I asked my husband where he wanted to go when he retires. He said he would like to visit Nepal for a vacation. He is planning a trek in the Himalayas while I’m going to look for beaded jewelry and handicraft at the souvenir flea market there. Nepal beaded accessories are known for their eccentric designs.I also love their colorful handbags. Native products doesn’t go out of style and its cheaper since they are made of locally produced materials.

I saw these Nepali and Tibetan items sold online where they distribute handwoven handbags to gongs. I found this Army Green Felt Tibetan Wool shoulder handbag. I’m going to reserve it as Christmas gift for my daughter. I’m sure she’ll love it.Hubby, on the other hand, is interested to buy a gong or a crystal singing bowl.

I told him about my interest to learn yoga for a less strenuous activity. The gong or singing bowl that only cost a few hundred bucks can be used for meditation and relaxation. It may sound absurd, but the vibration and resonance they produce has calming effect to the body. So when we really try out yoga these tools could enhance the effect of meditation to our wellness.
