Door wreath wool with felt bow
Why felt when you can do it airy? The special thing about this wreath, made from New Zealand virgin wool, is the way it is made: Virgin wool threads are drawn by hand around the virgin wool-wrapped wreath - thick and short enough to maintain the (wreath) shape, yet long enough to create that handsome look of plush. The red felt bow is also created purely by hand and provides a festive contrast to the green of the wreath.
Whether attached to the front door, hung in the Christmas-lit window or placed on the wall: Even in solo appearance, the Scandinavian design with its clear design language and color scheme looks very striking. Of course, you can just as well decorate the wreath individually, with small Christmas balls or an ice glass orphan. And even after Christmas, this woolen wreath makes a handsome messenger of winter, if you equip it with winter berries, for example. Because wreaths are versatile and probably as old as human heads and dwellings. The ancient Germanic tribes, for example, used door wreaths to ward off disaster, the Greeks and Romans placed laurel wreaths on the heads of their elect, and Polynesians still greet visitors with wreaths of flowers around their necks as a sign of hospitality. The door wreaths of our modern homes with their circular shape announce the constant return of the seasons, which are revealed in the respective wreath decoration.
A Fair Collaboration. 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 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, 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.
This product is an example of genuine handicraft; therefore, minor deviations in size and colour may occur.
