Aloha bay started importing Himalayan Salt products from Pakistan in 2004. We work exclusively with a small, family owned company in Mirpur, close to the Himalayan foothills. The owner/manager of that factory Tarik Kahkahr first true decorative and edible salt “factory” there in 2003.
Typically, salt lamps are produced in temporary garage-type workshops, where working conditions leave a lot to be desired. These garage-shops are often set up just to fill a few containers, offering only temporary employment. Quality standards are difficult, if not impossible, to maintain in such an environment. Nowadays, many Pakistan nationals are trying to make a “quick buck” selling low-priced salt lamps from these workshops. They are essentially middle men, not factory owners, brokering deals and paying the least possible for product and to their employees.
Tariq’s staff produces exclusively for Aloha Bay, and a relationship of trust and friendship has developed over the years. In Tariq’s factory, employment is year-round. This also guarantees consistent quality because the sculpting of the lamps is a delicate procedure.
Aloha bay offer products to help you reduce synthetics from your environments, improve your health, and create sacred space.
