Artisans we support
We love how each artisan group uses cultural techniques, traditional textiles and handmade processes to create one of a kind products.
By shopping these products, you're helping to provide a stable and reliable income to the artisan and their family.

The Nepalese artisans are extremely skilled in what they do and they use ancient Nepalese techniques to felt the wool into the flower shapes.
The flowers are made using raw wool from New Zealand sheep which is felted to make their gorgeous designs. The raw wool is first dyed using eco-friendly colours then the wool is rubbed together with soapy water and the shape of the flower is formed. The flowers are then left to dry in the sun.
