These wonderful felt products come from Friends Handicraft near Kathmandu. In 2004 Shanti and Nirjala began to make felt. Since then the production has expanded quickly for the two women and they now have more than 125 employees, mostly women.Their goal by selling felt is to create more jobs for women in Nepal, which rarely have the same terms as men. From being 100 employees in 2016, there are now 125 employees in 2017. Everyone is welcome to visit the production place in Nepal, which many already have done. The felt is made of 100% wool from New Zealand and is of the highest quality. The wool is dyed with colors that are 100% AZO-free.
