Folk Nepal is a non-profit sharing NGO founded in Kathmandu in 2000, with the purpose to support skill building of needy craft artisans and to assist them in marketing their products internationally. The revenues are invested in charity work in rural Nepal, for instance in financial support for education for needy families, and for medical care. Folk Nepal sells a wide range of Nepali-made products such as clothes, bags and accessories, household goods made from textiles, wood or ceramics, wooden and plush toys, but also several miniatures of typical Nepali vehicles: an autorickshaw in about 1/18th scale and a Tata truck available in three different sizes. These miniatures are made of wood and painted in vivid colours, and although they are not exact reproductions, their prototypes are well recognizable.
