Mice dolls felt set of 2
Charming roommates. Not only at Christmas time
With the Secret Santa, little mice have also crept into the Scandinavian Christmas tradition unawares. To all appearances, they had hidden in the fir tree cut for Christmas Eve, immediately felt at home in the Christmas-decorated surroundings and therefore settled down domestically. Humans have never been bothered by them, especially since they do no harm whatsoever and are undeniably charming - and since they come across as so lovable, they are finding more and more friends outside of Christmas trees and decorations. Felt by hand from New Zealand virgin wool, these mice dressed in hand-knitted wool clothing have such handsome and hand-flattering qualities that you hardly want to let them out of your eyes and hand.
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.
