Meet the Artisans

Metal Artisan in Haiti In the heart of the old Tibetan quarter in Lhasa, just a ten minute walk from the Jokhang temple, is the Dropenling Handicraft Center. Dropenling means ‰ÛÏgiving back for the betterment of all sentient beings.‰۝ The program is the brainchild of the Tibet Artisan Initiative (TAI), a project of the Tibet Poverty Alleviation Fund a Boston-based organization founded in 1997 to help Tibetans in Tibet.

Some of Dropenling‰۪s most popular products include their hand and finger puppets. A professional costume designer was brought to Dropenling to work with a group of seven tailors to develop these wonderfully animated animals. From top to bottom and tip to tail, the woolen appliqu̩ detailing is more than captivating. The group started with snowlion and tiger puppets as they are commonly found throughout Tibetan art, and make great characters!

In 2007, Dropenling became a self-sustaining business whose profits are re-invested into further support of the Tibetan artisan community. In addition to providing a steady market to Tibetan artisans through the Dropenling store, TAI has developed a number of other economic development programs that address problems and issues faced by the artisans today.

Q - What are Memory Cross cards made of and how durable are they?

A - The small Memory Cross cards are printed on 10 point coated board (think playing cards).  The larger cards which measure 6 x 6 inches are printed on 100 lb. uncoated cover (think Hallmark card).  We've tested each size and they hold up to hundreds of folds.  The larger cards hold up longer because the "hinges" that allow them to fold are larger.  We've tested the larger cards to fold over 500 times.  That being said it is still important for the cards to be folded properly.  Most children can figure it out on their own but if you are giving them to 4 or 4 year olds we recommend that you show them how it works.  If you do not know how they work, we've created a video that you can watch by clicking here.

Q - What guarantee do you offer?

A - Memory Cross offers a 100% money back guarantee if you are not happy for any reason.  We even pick up the cost of shipping the product back.  Here is the link to our full return policy.
