Fall time is pumpkin time ...
... that is beyond any doubt. From pumpkin soup to pumpkin pie, from the pumpkin lantern at Halloween to the winter pumpkin on the Thanksgiving table to the Great Pumpkin that Linus waits for longingly in the Peanuts movie - an autumn without pumpkins is possible, but pointless (to put it with Loriot).
In addition, pumpkins enrich our living space so appealingly with their bright colors. These pumpkins are carefully felted by hand from pure New Zealand virgin wool and set a colorful accent as a durable alternative to commercial decorative pumpkins for many autumns: as an atmospheric decoration of your Sunday table, as a splash of color in the vase arrangement of your autumn branches, as decoration of a small Thanksgiving gift or even in the autumnal designed mobile of your youngest.
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.
