Durable kissing zone
Kissing under the mistletoe is a tradition, especially at Christmas - but not only, especially if you choose this mistletoe, hand-felted from pure new wool, to set up the kissing zone. So you are inclined, this mistletoe opens the door to the expression of friendly or romantic affection permanently. By the way, the custom of cheerfully giving a kiss under the mistletoe goes back to the Germanic goddess Frigga. According to legend, her son Balder had been killed by an arrow made of mistletoe - and was miraculously brought back to life. Outraged with joy at being saved, Frigga kissed everyone who passed under the tree with the mistletoe ... And if they have not died, they still kiss today.
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.
