About Us

Welcome to Himalayankart

Himalayan Kart is a digital endeavor to empower the hard-working women folk of the Kumaon Hills of Uttarakhand.

All the products on our platform are an outcome of the resilient spirit of 30,000 underprivileged women working in Self Help Groups in the Nainital district. The Covid-19 pandemic inspired us to go digital and connect our women warriors to a nationwide market.

Himalayan Kart is an initiative of the National Rural Livelihood Mission. The NRLM also lends direct support to women-led SHGs in Uttarakhand by providing adequate training opportunities and resources for the capacity building of their members.

Hilans, the brand is a pledge to bring back that beauty through beauty! Hilans is a metaphor to empowerment and change. From the lap of the Himalayas. A brand that holds the soul, the rootedness, the beauty of Uttarakhand, at its heart. A brand that brings together the choicest, the most authentic and natural products from Uttarakhand. HILANS is a chance to make a difference. A brand built on purpose, a brand that has relentless agents of change working towards uplifting the less-privileged people of Uttarakhand, empowering women, and conserving the environment and helping bring back the melody of our dear bird Hilans !
