About the Artisan
Gyaltshen K Dorji and his wife Uygen Wangmo created TSEM: locally-made toys with an objective to make playtime for children more educational on Bhutanese culture. The young couple, who are also parents, talk about the story behind TSEM and how their four year old inspired them to create the business in the first place.
