The artisans here produce Tibetan and Bhutanese handicraft and jewellery such as woodcarvings, copperware like feng-sui bells, tapestry bags, scrolls, paintings and Tibetan jewellery.

The town and its surrounding area was ruled by Bhutan for about a century and a half before it was annexed by the British in 1865. This also paved way for increased trade with Tibet through Jelepla. Even today Kalimpong remains one of the largest market places in the region.
