Some background on felt: Felt is a non-woven textile that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together. Felt can be made of natural fibres such as wool or synthetic fibres such as acrylic. Felt is formed by applying heat, moisture, and pressure on wool .
Handmade, eco friendly, fair trade: All our products are made using 100% NZ wool, and are handcrafted in Nepal, using traditional methods, ethically and under fair trade guidelines. You can buy Rainbows and Clover felt products, knowing you're supporting a great group of artisans. We're working with a wonderful group of people in Nepal who are so happy to be working with us! It's a wonderful feel-good project, and we have so many more projects in the pipeline ... what are they getting from the experience? In their own words, they're getting the chance to develop new products using old skills, and enabling workers to stay in their villages, and work with their families. What are we getting from it? The chance to design and develop a remarkable array of products that have been designed and made with love, naturally, using natural dyes, and it's a feel-good project. We're loving it!
Rainbows and Clover is proud to be supporting a time-honoured tradition, and helping village people in Nepal to stay in their villages doing the handiwork that they love.
