Our Story

Hi! My name’s Christina, thanks for stopping by.

If you are looking for the story of how Soul Charms began, then look no further.

It all started on a trip with my husband 2 years ago.

We were backpacking through the mountainous terrain of the Southeastern region of the Himalayas and stopped in a local village to rest. I was instantly awestruck by the people there- they were living in terrible conditions; their houses were filled with cracks, their clothes were torn and dirty, and they didn’t have any electricity or running water, yet their spirits were the highest I had ever seen. Enchanted, me and my husband decided to walk into the village marketplace, and when we arrived, I couldn't believe my eyes- the most beautiful crafts I had ever seen laid before me in a wonderfully vibrant marketplace. I became completely overwhelmed, and experienced what some call a “spiritual awakening”. Between the beautiful handmade items and the energy of the people surrounding me, I felt like I was completely home. I knew I had to capture that moment; to preserve it; to not let it go to waste; to bring it back home with me and share it with everyone I knew, so I bought as many crafts as I could and wrapped them up in my old sleeping bag. To my complete bewilderment, the items completely sold out to my friends and family the same day I arrived. It was then that I realized I had stumbled upon something very special.

I knew at that moment I had a responsibility to share what I came across with the world, the part of the world that didn’t even know this culture existed. So I brainstormed about how to turn my vision into a reality, and with the help of my tech-savvy husband, set up an online store dedicated to selling culturally enriched handmade Himalayan items.

A surprising 2 years later, and still going strong, I am starting to realize that this isn’t just a business venture- it's about spreading a beautiful culture to every part of the world, about bringing the healing energy of the Himalayas to those who need it most, and about empowering people to take the lead in their own spiritual journeys.

Thank you for being a part of my spiritual journey, and Namaste!
