Handmade camel decoration for your plastic-free Christmas

Decorated with beads, bells and recycled materials, this adorable little chap is handmade from 90% recycled wool and 5% cotton. The wool is sourced from local markets in India. The fabric's strong defined shape comes from the specific felting technique used by Indian artisans that differs from the traditional Nepalese felting technique often seen.

We think they’re quirky and fun and are sure to bring lots of joy into peoples lives. This adorable felt decoration can be hung from your tree, or anywhere, to spread festive cheer. 

Handmade by artisans in Mumbai, India.

Shared Earth

Our Mission: "To improve the livelihoods of disadvantaged people in developing countries, benefiting local community projects and keeping alive traditional skills that would otherwise be lost."

Shared Earth's policy is to provide quality, design-led products, not just to those who are already aware of Fair Trade principles. With Fair Trade sales showing no sign of slowing, more and more employment is being provided for artisans in developing countries, many of who would otherwise be out of work. At a time when global conflict seems also on the increase, Shared Earth's partnerships with producers are an invaluable way of building bridges, showing that people can work together for mutual benefit, no matter what their race, religion or culture.
