Take care: Felt is simple to care for.
Wiping with a wet cloth will remove most stains. If the item needs to be thoroughly cleaned, hand wash it in luke warm water with a plain soap (no perfumes or dyes), then wring it out and leave to dry.
When felt is worn often, it tends to grow small "piles" of loose wool fibres (which) happens with all wool products. Just pull them off the item, or on smaller, thinner items just cut them off. Felt actually becomes stronger with wear.
Steam or iron the felt to remove wrinkles. You could also do this if it is looking a bit sorry for itself.
Friends Handicraft, Nepal
Friends Handicraft is a nonprofit organization based in Kathmandu, Nepal with the mission of fighting urban poverty, run by two Nepali women, Shanti and Nirjala.
This small organisation supports skills training and income generation programs for women heads of household and single mothers living in and around the capital, Kathmandu - many of whom are survivors of human trafficking. This support fosters a sense of independence and confidence in an otherwise marginalized population.
The organization also provides books and school supplies for the children of participating women artisans and medical benefits including regular health checks. Should anyone need a loan, then this is provided with no interest added.
Friends Handicraft are dedicated to promoting women`s rights in a country where women are considered second class citizens. Over the last few years the number of employees has grown from 6 to now over 100 young women. By buying their Fair Trade gifts you are helping women in the developing world to start a new life.
Our cute sweet strawberry felt shoulder bag was handmade by Friends Handicraft. You can read more about Friends Handicraft artisans in our Fair Trade Producers section.
