WHO WE ARE
Khangri Sourcing® was founded in 1985 by our CEO and Creative Director, Tashi Sherpa. For decades, he was immersed in every aspect of the international apparel industry – from garment manufacturing, to sourcing, to owning and running a factory. Through those years, he worked side-by-side with some of the best people in the business, and in 1989, Tashi put together a hand-picked team of his most trusted colleagues – many of whom are involved with Khangri Sourcing today.
At headquarters in Seattle, the team includes a talented technical designer and quality assurance expert (Gina), whose career included 14 plus years at Nordstrom. There is a superb duo of meticulous, hardworking project coordinators (Christina & Becky), who combine their strong capacity for client service and logistics with adept skills in merchandising and detailed product development. You will find a 25 year outdoor industry veteran of sales, market analysis, product education, and brand building (Ted), who has represented heavy hitting brands such as Arc’teryx, Victorinox Swiss Army, K2 and Keen among others. Together under the leadership of Tashi, Khangri Sourcing gets the job done.
Overseas, in Pakistan, Shahid takes care of QA at our Karachi office. Austen has a similar role along with more sourcing duties in Shanghai, China. Atul attends to Khangri’s interests in New Delhi, India. And in our company owned facilities in Nepal, Tsering oversees operations and manufacturing, while Suren is our lead sourcing manager. Additionally, Khangri Sourcing has a state of the art product development and sampling center run by RK in Kathmandu. All of these key players are supply chain veterans and have the resources they need at their disposal, including more administrative and production staff.
When you work with Khangri Sourcing®, you’ll get the benefit of our team’s collective know-how, and the cumulative expertise that comes from years of working together. You’ll receive a quality of customer service that is rare in our industry. We are trustworthy, reliable people who know what you’re going through because we’ve been there before. And we do our absolute best to make sure your experience is a positive and successful one. This is what we’re known for, this is why we’re in business today, and this is why our clients start with us – and stay with us.
