Dedicated to enhancing the lives of Himalayan artisans and their communities through the development and marketing of their craft traditions these handmade items are fair-trade and made in Nepal. Founded in 1990 by a female founder felt and at that time the producer employed 20 women. Today they manage over 500! Now they work with 7 groups in India and 13 in Nepal, with over 1,000 artisans indirectly employed.
Size: Approximately 4 to 5″ tall x 4 to 5″ in diameter. Very minor changes in facial details may occur due to the handmade nature of the item, but they will always substantially look exactly like what you see.
Excess water will wick through the natural woolen fibers, so you may want to place a small dish inside (or outside), just in case, depending on where it is sitting. However, wool naturally breathes, and will self-dry unless overwatered, as the felt used is very thick.
