Have fun with Mr. Snowman
"In the meadow we can build a snowman," sang Ella Fitzgerald of "Winter Wonderland" (whose version, by the way, we think is the most beautiful, but that's just by the way, and you're welcome to object, at least in this case). So that you don't have to wait for the snow to glisten in the streets, we present you - for decorative purposes or even as a lucky charm - this hand-felted snowman made of pure New Zealand virgin wool. So you don't have to worry that he'll melt the next time the warmth hits, and you can happily hum along with Ella (or yes, Dean Martin or Macy Gray or the Cocteau Twins or the countless other interpreters of this song) as you decorate your home: "In the meadow we can build a snowman / And pretend that he's a circus clown / We'll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman ..."
A Fair Collaboration. Én 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 Én 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, Én 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.
