FairFelt is a new range of Merino Wool felt decorations and accessories produced by a small fair trade organisation in Nepal. All products in the range are made from New Zealand Merino Wool which is soft, strong and hard wearing- a leap in quality from the usual thin felted products made in China. All bags and purses are lined, use quality zips and have care instructions inside.
We buy these products direct from the producer in Kathmandu so by purchasing one (or more) of these items you're directly supporting families in rural parts of Nepal. Our supplier focuses on three areas- financial, ethical and environmental. Workers are paid a fair wage for production and have a guarantee of secure employment. Working conditions are monitored and kept to a high standard. No children are used in the production of the range, and where possible traditional processes are used. Felt is of course a natural material but the company also ensures that any chemicals used in the production are contained so, for example, the dyes used are not able to find their way into local watercourses.
