Farm animals felt
Friendly, even mischievous, the classic farm animals present themselves here with horse, cow, pig, goat and sheep. For those who don't know of a farm nearby, these hand-felted figures are charming visual objects that give children their first vivid impressions of the animal world of a farm.
After all, who hasn't heard the wild rumors that run rampant, especially about city kids: Allegedly, for example, a large proportion of our offspring believe that cows are purple and give UHT milk. This is certainly an exaggeration, but nevertheless an initial in-depth look at naturally designed animal figures and an accompanying conversation about their special characteristics is a good idea. And in the case of these farm animals, not only the horse and sheep invite you to touch and pet them, but also the goat, pig and cow are made of pure new wool from New Zealand and thus have a long life ahead of them.
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.
