Shop Update – Corona-virus
Our Bothell location remains open, however our Belper shop is currently in Tier 4 and therefore closed to in person shopping. However, both online shops up and running! All of our tours are postponed until at least 2021. While we are are always pleased to see you in our shops, we are happy to be doing our part to slow the impact of this pandemic by offering online shopping at both locations, click & collect at both locations, and local delivery in Belper. Please click on the shop pics to see the current hours and regulations at each location. Be sure to click Shop to find our favorite treasures in the online stores – many of which are in our winter sale. We hope to see you soon!
Introducing: Sankara Imports UK
We are thrilled to share with you our newest location in Belper, Derbyshire! We carry the same fabulous handicrafts from India, Nepal, and Turkey as we do in Bothell. We can’t believe how lucky we are to join the Best High Street in England!
Welcome to Sankara Imports
Sankara Imports is an ethically traded shop full of treasures from India, Nepal, and Turkey. Every piece in the shop was selected by Katey and Francesca who work directly with the artisans. Through their work with the artisans, Sankara is able to bring you beautiful, unique pieces at affordable prices that you can feel good in and about! Sankara also works with a variety of charities in India and Nepal with at least 5% of each purchase being donated to bring about positive change.
Sankara Imports believes that social impact and understanding can be made through the exchange of ideas and art. You can learn more about us here. Or you can find out more about our artists here. You can also find out more about our charitable partners here.

Charity of the Month
At Ladli children learn to make jewelry and handicrafts – valuable skills in Jaipur. The children are also taught Hindi, English, Art and Dance, and provided nutrition, medical check-ups and counselling. Most importantly of all they gain confidence, hope and self-esteem. We believe that in addition to providing children education and employability, Ladli is a place where emotional trauma and the stresses of poverty can in some way be healed.
Kapil works with recycled materials in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Kapil likes to find new ways to use things that are normally thrown away. You can find his handmade cards, gift/money envelopes, and bowls in the shop.
