Why this web shop?
Some years ago, the oldest son of Uli (the founder of the samahan.online project) gave him some sachets of Samahan he had from his visit in SriLanka. It was amazing taste and reminds him to holiday and nature.
After this experience, the whole family started drinking a cup of Samahan every day.
Soon this they became a supply problem. Ordering in Sri Lanka tooks long, sometimes 2 to 3 month, and a lot of orders got stuck with german customs, due to missing declaration.
At the same time, more and more friends and family wanted Samahan. So idea of samahan.online was born.
Just at that time Uli was looking for a way to add practical economic knowledge to the very academic school economics of his youngest son, Paul (16).
Finally Samahan.online started as scholar-project.
Together with his friends and a little help from Uli designed Paul in Spring 2017 the webpage, organised sourcing, stock keeping, marketing and shipping. On top they learned a lot about accounting, calculation and taxes.
Half a year after the start in Germany, the project taking the next step with this english website for the european customers.
In 2019 the project was handed over to "our Charly", who continues it with his wife in line with the Samahan.online idea.
