Made from naturally-dyed New Zealand wool, these adorable felted friends are perfect companions for the cold season ahead. Each one is made by hand in Nepal, where the crafting industry provides women with job opportunities and supports self-independence for artists living in the capital Kathmandu and its neighboring villages.
Choose from Scarf, Santa Hat, Fox, Penguin, Rabbit, Deer, Squirrel, Reindeer, Anteater, Bird, or Owl.
Please Note that some animals have strings to hang while others are meant for tucking on mantles, bookshelves, and other little corners.
The mountainous region of Tibet, right by the Himalayas, has a long history of fiber artistry, and to this day felt crafts are one of the most important industries that support the Nepalese economy. Originally, felt work started as work support for women in Kathmandu and neighboring villages; today this same work supports the independence and self-determination of these talented women.
