The story of Nado Poizokhang begins with our founder, Mr. Nado. Mr. Nado was first introduced to the art of incense making by his abbot, Geelong Nerchendrep Tshering Dorji. Under his guidance, Mr. Nado learned the traditional methods of incense making and the importance of using only natural ingredients sourced from the Himalayas.
In 1991, Mr. Nado seized the opportunity to put his expertise into practice by establishing Nado Poizokhang along with his wife Mrs. Sonam Tshomo, after the privatization of the government-owned incense factory where he worked. With the support of his family and community, Nado Poizokhang has become the oldest and most reputable producer of high-quality incense products in Bhutan and has received international recognition.
For over 30 years, Mr. Nado has been dedicated to providing customers with the finest incense products while also supporting rural communities through employment and sustainable sourcing practices. Under his leadership, Nado Poizokhang has become the oldest and gained a reputation for producing high-quality incense products that have been well received both within Bhutan and internationally.
Today, Nado Poizokhang continues the legacy of our founder, Mr. Nado, as we honour his vision and passion for incense making. We are proud to offer natural, high-quality incense products that reflect the richness and beauty of Bhutan's cultural heritage.
