About Our Team

A little about who we are...

The Himalayan Team

Tenzin

A descendant of Tibetan nomadic horsemen, his years of exploring the high Himalayas has revealed to him the secret locations of pure Shilajit, which he generously shares with us and a select few lucky ones who order here.

Kuldeep

A native of the Manali region of Kullu Valley, it is his mother and sisters who knit socks. Due to his ability to read and write, he supports them by taking the orders and packaging the socks for them wherever they need to go.

‘Mumma’

That’s what we call her. At something over 70 years, she is an inspirational strong active woman in her community. Still working hard in her fields ploughing and sowing by hand, she knits the best socks we’ve ever seen in her spare time.

The Australian Team

Siddhartha

As a long time traveller, explorer and tour guide in the Himalayas, he is keen to support and enrich the lives of the people who live there. The connections for Made In The Himalayas developed over many years of shared adventures.

Chetana

One of the original instigators of the Made In The Himalayas project, she has been instrumental in sharing the joys and benefits of Shilajit for Health and Arty Socks for Cosy Toes amongst her friends and family.

Bubuloo

As the Australian face of Made In The Himalayas, Bubuloo oversees the orders and makes sure everyone gets what they paid for and that the funds go directly back to the right people in the Himalayas.
