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 love this ornament. It is well made. The pig is absolutely adorable. Lightweight.
Cutest, little pink piggie on the slopes. A winner for decorating!
This adorable little fuzzy bear holds a heart near and dear and it turned out to be mine! This little cuteness is one of my favorites now!
My husband got me this for Christmas. I collect nativity sets from around the world. It is a really lovely little set. The sheep is too cute for words. it is well made too. In order to display it without the pieces falling down, might have to stuff each piece with tissue paper. Just to give them volume, but that is really easily done and undone for storage. I love that the set is from Nepal too.
