THE TECHNIQUE

Friends Handicrafts in Nepal employs talented women artisans who use ancient techniques to create beautiful felt products. Felt is a material that has been used in the Himalayas for generations to protect from the harsh elements, but until recently there was not a developed industry for felt products in Nepal.

Felt is unique from other textiles because it is not knitted or woven. Instead, it is made from matted wool, manipulated with soap and water to create the desired shape. After the felt items are shaped, they are dried in the sun. Once dry, the artisans sew and embroider the felt to turn it into ornaments, stuffed animals, accessories, and more.
