What is Felt?
How are felt products produced?
While still wet, the felt is shaped into the pattern of the intended product. The shaping is done by hand without sewing or patching. Hand manipulation and rubbing in combination with the application of hot water achieve the desired shape. The shaped felt items then are sun-dried. After drying, final shaping and joining may require gluing and/or sewing, according to the design. You can see some pictures of the people working to make felt items.
All our felt products are fair trade items produced by low-income and displaced workers, primarily female urban dwellers. Purchasing these felt products serves to help support these workers, who depend on such programs to improve their lives.
