nepal felts


Loving these felt bags on Lilluxe today.  The event is open for four more days.  Here's what they say about the darling line on their website...

This charming collection of purses and pouches is made by women in Nepal who shape raw wool by hand, creating quality felt that can be formed into any shape and dyed into vibrant colors. No chemicals are used during this process, and since they’re relatively simple to make, many underprivileged women have become involved in the industry, thus empowering them and improving their standard of living (this also creates more job opportunities for them and helps send their children to school).
