Product DescriptionFeeling hot, hot, hot! These little artisan chilli brooches are delightful. They look good enough to display let alone just wear. The production of this item is a perfect example of how the company is helping to preserve traditions, lifestyles and skills that have survived for centuries, but are under threat from cheap labour and mass-production elsewhere. The supplier who makes this product employs around four hundred men and women, who, in addition to statutory wages, receive bonuses, medical allowances, insurance, Provident Funding and maternity allowance. They also provide scholarships to see some children through school. In Nepal it?s very difficult to find work as an uneducated woman, but as the felt products are accessible, and a relatively simple process, many under-privileged women being given the chance to earn through this scheme, improving their living standards and empowering them to make changes. The felt is made entirely by hand by shaping the raw wool with soap, water and hand pressure. No chemicals are used during this process. They say ?We are very proud that our business is helping to develop Nepal?. Wear as a brooch or alternatively, pin all three to a kitchen notice board for a cheeky and brilliant decoration.
