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.

WHAT WE DO

THINK OF US AS YOUR ONE-STOP PARTNER FOR APPAREL DESIGN, PRODUCT SOURCING,
GARMENT MANUFACTURING, AND GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION

 

Through all the complexities of global sourcing, whether it’s help with one step in the process or support through the entire journey. And, you’ll receive the same respectful, high-quality customer service we’re known for, whether you’re a start-up or an established industry leader. We’re committed to fulfilling your requirements every step of the way, with the patience and dedication we wish we’d experienced when we were new to the industry. And we’ll collaborate with you to evaluate your needs, explore options, and develop a plan that’s tailored to your TARGETS AND TIMELINES.

We have the talent and the resources to make your apparel ideas real. Maybe you have a clear idea in mind that needs simply requires translation into a pattern so that samples can be made. Or perhaps you have a vague conceptual direction and you need help with designing products that can be feasibly manufactured. Whatever the case may be, our team of talented designers is here for you.

We’ve invested over 30 years into establishing, building, and maintaining great relationships with the best, most reliable, safe, and compliant suppliers in the world. Whether you’re searching for the ingredients you need to build your product, or you want to find a finished product that’s already been made, when you choose to work with us, you have access to our most trusted suppliers. Plus, you benefit from the deep reservoir of our team’s knowledge. We’re comfortable with navigating the ins and outs of the international apparel business, so instead of wasting time and money on trial and error, your energy can be focused on running your business.

We have the expertise, resources, and experience to develop almost any garment you can imagine – from the extremely technical, to the most basic. We do it all: seam-sealed, waterproof shells; insulated midlayers; t-shirts; accessories. Plus, we are willing and able to work with small test-run quantities, so you can build your business at a pace that’s comfortable and affordable to you, without making a risky up-front investment.

We can help you get your products made – either at partner factories or at the factories we own and operate in Nepal. When utilizing our Nepalese factories, you will have the most direct positive impact – socially, economically, and environmentally. Another benefit of manufacturing in Nepal: goods that ship from there to Europe, Japan, Australia, and Canada are duty-free.

We have embedded quality assurance systems in place, so whatever you’re having made through us, will be built to a standard that you can feel proud to put your logo on.

We can oversee the materials, information, and finances as your project moves from supplier to manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer to consumer. We’ll coordinate and integrate these flows both within and among suppliers so that you can focus on the aspects of your business that are most important to you. We make sure that your project goes according to plan. And if and when you have questions or concerns, we are responsive: we’ll never leave you hanging.

We can manage the packing, labeling, and shipping of your product domestically or internationally. We can also ship directly to your retail accounts, with cartons and paperwork showing your company as the original shipper. This service gives you tremendous operational savings for nominal costs at the source.

We’ve always believed that what is good for the community, is good for us. And this translates into doing what we can to treat each other, and the earth we depend on, with respect. Operating in alignment with our values is of key importance to us, and when you choose to work with Khangri Sourcing®, you’re also choosing to do business responsibly.

A few of the things we’re doing to make a difference:

  • We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of all phases of our business. We utilize STeP (Sustainable Textile Production), an independent certification system by OEKO-TEX® for sustainable textile production. The STeP certification process monitors social working conditions, and the use of sustainable environmentally-friendly technologies and resources.
  • We are dedicated to improving the lives of Nepalese children and our workers. We donate to groups that are in line with this goal by funding scholarships, building schools, supporting orphanages, and finding ways to improve living conditions.
  • We support artisanal craftsmanship by contracting with over 1,000 Nepalese women each year to make hand-knit garments.
