Felt Flower Bouquet

Posted on

Paper High have become great friends of Just Fair Trade over the last few years! We love their sari notebooks and their handcrafted paper, but we think this everlasting bouquet of felt flowers made from merino wool is the perfect Mothers Day present!

The flowers are created in Nepal by women from some of the poorest communities. ‘The felt is handmade using traditional methods. Instead of weaving the wool, felt is created by applying heat, moisture and pressure to the wool to entangle the fibres and create a beautiful end result.’

Of their approach, Paper High say:

We only work with small family businesses, community incentives, charities and accredited Fair Trade organisations and our promise is that every product on this site is Fair Trade as set out by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). All our products are handmade by skilled artisans using sustainable or recycled materials wherever possible.

It is an absolute must to us that we have a mutually beneficial relationship with our fair trade suppliers. We love and respect the people we work with and have got to know them and their families well over the years and consider them true friends. It is always a joy to visit them and catch up on all the news.
