When have you started your work?
Around 2003 A.D.(18 years back)
What motivated you to work in this field?
After receiving training from 'Gharelu', I began to work elsewhere. When I felt I had gathered the experience to run my own business in this field, I founded my own company.
What do you like about your work?
I like that I can satisfy my customers by delivering their orders on time.
What do you like about working with Né Nepal?
In comparison with other relations, Né Nepal is new to us, and we are enjoying this relationship so far. Hope everything goes well in the future.
How do you see the future of jewelry handicrafts?
Despite the fact that no design will last forever, the interest of people is constantly changing and jewelry handicrafts keep evolving, making their longevity possible.
Is your work environment friendly?
Yes, it is. We recycle the materials and produce very little waste.
What designs can you produce?
We can produce samples of any design.
Can you explain some of your experiences?
Workspace is one of many problems we face. There are many complaints we receive from many residents living nearby that we are making noise and using chemicals that are causing health problems. But we must continue to do this because for a new startup, we have to start from zero.
What equipment do you use while making the jewelry?
Basically we create designs by hand using this simple machine.
Is your product expensive?
Almost all of our products are sold on a wholesale basis.
Team Né Nepal is proud to have Mr. R.K. Gomba as one of our artisans. We hope that he continues to grow his business and wish him the best in all his future endeavors.
