Felt Coin Purse - Hummingbird - Wild Woolies (P)
The purse is made with 100% natural wool and non-toxic, azo-free dyes. The hand felting and applique details on this 5 inches by 3.5 inch purse is done by a women's felting business in Kathmandu, Nepal, that emphasizes providing skills and income opportunities to women of greater need.
Meet the Artisans
Walking into the Kathmandu production center’s reception you are immediately greeted by a cheerful ‘Namaste’ (‘I Salute the God Within You’) with hands pressed together in a prayerful expression. Proceeding into any of the production halls you’ll be greeted by a complete chorus of the same as dozens of ladies press felt into a variety of shapes, while others stitch, needle and applique to finish hundreds of different styles of decorative items for export.
Sheep’s wool is an amazingly adaptable fiber. It can be dyed any color and when hand felted using warm mildly soapy water it can be molded into any shape, or then cut and sewn together as per your imagination. Because the felting and most of the stitching process is all done by hand with natural materials that can be sustainably harvested, hand felted products have a relatively soft impact on the environment. Commercial exports of felted products from Nepal have grown exponentially since around 2000, benefitting thousands of mostly women workers, production managers and family businesses who help support their families and educate their children with their earnings.

I bought this ornament as a gift for my son's kindergarten teacher who loves hummingbirds. I was so impressed when I opened the package. The pictures do not even do it justice! It is beautifully made and I know she will love it! And I love giving a gift like this that gives both ways!!
The most original and creative birdhouse I've seen in some time. It was exactly as I expected, exactly as it was shown. For a lover of birdhouses, this is a most unique addition. Ordering was easy, delivery was quick, and the entire transaction was the way you wish all online transactions would go, but most often don't. Thank you
Let me fly into your house as a great decoration for any time of the year! I am very colorful and well made.....
Beautifully colored Great Horned Owl- Super attention to detail and very nicely made.
