Amdo Craft- Handmade Tibetan Slings
Dec 17th, 2011 at 8:39pm
 
Good slings for a good cause at a good price.  Handmade in Tibet, I think the deal is that if you buy two or more there is no shipping.

Yes, you are right.

Two slings will be 14USD.

That's what it says on your website.
Doesn't mention any extra shipping - you might want to add that there is extra shipping for just one sling.

Yes, you are right, that is a bit confusing.  We are busy making a whole new website, which will have these details mentioned more clearly.

Our new website is up and running. Please have a look.

We have Tibetan Slings:  http://www.amdocraft.com/shop/en/e10.html
And we have lots of other Tibetan Hand made products:  http://www.amdocraft.com/shop/en/
We try to keep the prices low:  A sling for about 3.50 USD (excl shipping).

Help us help the Tibetan nomads.

Update on our Amdocraft Tibetan slings:

We have raised the prices of the slings.  This for several reasons:

-  The cost of wool, labour and fuel has nearly doubled in the last 2 years.
-  We want to give the Tibetan nomads a fair wage and after discussing with them what is fair, we agreed to raise the money that we give them
-  Recently we had a few times an order for slings and we lost money because shipping suddenly fell in a different category.  Not the fault of the customer at all, but we decided that we needed to have a bit more buffer in case that happens.

At the moment the price of 1 Tibetan sling is at USD 5.55    
And remember it is always better value for money to buy 2 or 3 slings, because the shipping per sling will go down.

You can order the slings here:   http://www.amdocraft.com/shop/en/e10.html

Happy slinging  Cool and greetings from Tibet,


Klaas

We got several sling orders recently. Great. We just picked up another 50 or so slings made by our Tibetan Nomad producers. It really helps to give them some additional income. Thanks.

I just recieved my order for 5 of these, and they are better than I would have hoped. Each one is different in weave pattern, and there is some variation in release cord styles as well. Very nice. Adding one to my EDC bag  Smiley

Thanks for the order.  We hope to ship the sling on Monday and it usually takes 10-20 days from here (China - Tibet) to the UK. We ship with registered China Postal service.
