Fir garland felt
It puts the crown on your decoration: In some detours, even linguistic history can trace the name "garland" to the ancient Provençal "guirlanda" - the "crown of gold threads". In the course of the centuries, leaves, flowers and fruits, which were understandably easier to obtain, prevailed instead of the gold threads, and to this day it is impossible to imagine any festivity without the garland wound from them. Whether it's a bachelor party or a shooting match, a wedding or Christmas, a garland is certainly draped in sweeping arcs for festivities and celebrations.
With this fir garland you can decorate your rooms as well as your Christmas tree - especially its handcrafted, sustainable alternative from domestic woods - festive again and again: Felt by hand from the virgin wool of New Zealand sheep, it offers the appropriate endurance and longevity, and also adds a pop of color to the festive occasion with vibrant leafy green and bright red berries.
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.
