The Story Behind It

Nepali Felt: The Fuzzy Facts

To transform real wool into felt with a distinctive, fuzzy look, craftspeople in Nepal use an age-old felting process. The wool fibers are matted with soap and water, then pressed to create a unique, homespun texture. The result is Nepali felt: a beautifully durable material that's been used in Nepal for thousands of years to create floor rugs, clothing, and even shelter.

Today, the art of felting continues to thrive, and Nepali felt is crafted into home décor, apparel, ornaments, accessories, and more. This versatile fabric can be brightly dyed and transformed into an array of unique patterns, allowing it to keep up with changing trends in the global market. You'll adore the look of our exclusive felt items, ranging from messenger bags to holiday ornaments; but we know you'll love that the sale of our pieces continues to support Nepalese artisans and their art of felting.
