These adorable little characters are 100% wool, hand felted and made in Nepal.

The maker of this item employs around four hundred workers. All employees have health insurance, maternity allowance and bonuses. The company also uses solar power and in the local community they give scholarships for children to go to school.
In Nepal, it is very difficult to get a job as an uneducated woman but these felt products have allowed under-privileged women to become involved in the industry, in turn increasing their standard of living and empowering them.
No chemicals are used in the process of shaping the raw wool by hand, into felt.
