    General Information

    Long-lived couple

    Savoury gingerbread, as we know it, has had a firm place in Christmas tradition since its "invention" in Dinant, Belgium, as a tree decoration as well as on the plate with Christmas cookies. This custom is also cultivated in English-speaking countries, where the fairy tale of the freshly baked gingerbread man, who comes to life while still on the stove and runs away from his baker, circulates. He is able to escape numerous pursuers, shouting victoriously, "And I can run away from you, I can!" In the end, the little gingerbread man can't after all, but ends up between the clutches of a fox ... And the moral of the story: these gingerbread figures are absolutely safe from the clutches of foxes and the teeth of hungry roommates. Because they were felted by hand from pure new wool - which in no way diminishes their decorative effect as winter and Christmas decorations, but increases their durability many times over.

    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.
