Meet the Artisans
Walking into the Kathmandu production centerâ€™s reception you are immediately greeted by a cheerful â€˜Namasteâ€™ (â€˜I Salute the God Within Youâ€™) with hands pressed together in a prayerful expression. Proceeding into any of the production halls youâ€™ll be greeted by a complete chorus of the same as dozens of ladies press felt into a variety of shapes, while others stitch, needle and applique to finish hundreds of different styles of decorative items for export.
Sheepâ€™s wool is an amazingly adaptable fiber. It can be dyed any color and when hand felted using warm mildly soapy water it can be molded into any shape, or then cut and sewn together as per your imagination. Because the felting and most of the stitching process is all done by hand with natural materials that can be sustainably harvested, hand felted products have a relatively soft impact on the environment. Commercial exports of felted products from Nepal have grown exponentially since around 2000, benefitting thousands of mostly women workers, production managers and family businesses who help support their families and educate their children with their earnings.
