    General Information

    (Almost) Eternal Temptation

    If only they had been invented sooner, Adam and Eve might not have been expelled from paradise - the pure new wool is now really not made to bite into. In lasting praise of these three hand-felted apples, it should be emphasized instead that their allure lies in a completely different sense and purpose anyway: Every year again the felt apples decorate Easter bouquet and autumn arrangement, festive table and mobile more lasting than any natural fruit, which would have to go all too soon the little paradisiacal way of everything transient.

    A Fair Collaboration. Én Gry & Sif.

    During her backpacking tour through Nepal, the Dane Gry Staunstrup got to know the astonishing openness and warmth of the country’s inhabitants, and their craftsmanship bedazzled her. She was able to observe in detail how adeptly and skilfully Nepalese women felted wool into a wide variety of objects. Staunstrup felt it was time to make something good out of the untapped potential, and an idea was born: to combine Nepalese handicrafts with Danish design. And the idea was immediately followed by action.

    The company Én Gry & Sif started producing a variety of products made of wool felt in Nepal in 2000. The designs created by Gry Staunstrup are as remarkable as they are understated and, characteristic of Danish design, at the same time fresh and merry. Nepalese women turn them into products employing traditional handicrafts. Fair Trade certified by now, Én Gry & Sif stands for fair wages and working conditions, environmentally conscious production and transparency. The company exclusively sources pure new wool from New Zealand sheep for the felting; each of the resulting products is handmade and unique.

    Hint:

    This product is an example of genuine handicraft; therefore, minor deviations in size and colour may occur.
