    General Information

    Have fun with Mr. Snowman

    "In the meadow we can build a snowman", sang Ella Fitzgerald the "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 do not have to wait for the snow to glisten in the streets, we give you - for decorative purposes or even as a good luck charm - this hand-felted snowman made of pure New Zealand virgin wool. So you won't have to worry about him melting the next time the heat hits, and you can happily sing along with Ella (or yes, even Dean Martin or Macy Gray or the Cocteau Twins or the myriad other performers* of this song) humming along: "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. 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.
