Mohammed Ibrahim and Qazi Sayed launched Turramqo, a jewelry brand, around 16 years ago. As Tibetan Muslims their main objective behind starting Turramqo was to bring a little bit of their own culture into their business venture. The two friends started out by making jewelry inspired by traditional Tibetan designs and are still doing the same thing and going strong even after all these years.
“We were a group of four friends who were extremely passionate about product designing. Every time we met we would discuss about collaborating and creating a space to work together,” says Nim Joshi, one of the co-founders of Metalwood Nepal. “All of us were from different backgrounds but our determination to make unique furniture and accessories brought us together,” he adds.
“We aim to make minimalist and trendy projects that are inspired by Nepali culture and traditions. That is why our products are unique and attractive,” says Shuvekshya Joshi, manager at Metalwood, Nepal, a design studio and workshop located in Patan. Their primary focus is to create exclusive accessories, interior decoration items, and furniture.
