Turquoise Mountain was established in 2006 at the behest of HRH The Prince of Wales and we now work in Afghanistan, Myanmar and the Middle East.


Turquoise Mountain’s aim is to preserve and regenerate historic areas and communities with a rich cultural heritage and to revive traditional crafts, to create jobs, skills and a renewed sense of pride.

Since 2006, Turquoise Mountain has restored 113 historic buildings, trained over 5,000 artisans, treated more than 100,000 patients, graduated hundreds of talented artisans, and generated over $5m in international sales from customers like Kate Spade 5th Avenue to London’s 5 star Connaught Hotel. Turquoise Mountain has also curated major international exhibitions around the world, from the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, to the Venice Biennale.
