If you are a fan of gorgeous, jolly and decorative textiles, you are on the right page. This handmade set of felt snow people befits perfectly. Each one has a different colour hat and scarf and they can’t help but raise a smile.
Supplier Info: 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 Fund pensions and maternity allowance. They also provide scholarships for gifted, but poor children to see them through school. In Nepal it’s very difficult to get a job as an uneducated woman, but many under-privileged women have been able to become involved in this industry, which in turn has helped to improve their living standards as well as empowering them. The felt is made from New Zealand and Tibetan wool, entirely by hand and shaped with soap, water and human hand pressure. Absolutely no chemicals are used during this process. The company says “We are very proud of our traditional centuries old methods of making and that our business is helping to develop Nepal.”
