Excess Wood from Furniture Factory

As mentioned above, the wood used in these lamps is excess off-cuts from a local furniture factory nearby KAPEG.  These pieces of wood would otherwise have been discarded or chipped and burned to run boilers.  Using the off-cuts to build useful products is an innovative, job-generating idea that KAPEG is hoping will create a new local industry here in Dhulikhel.
