Fairtrade Felt Decorations
If you're one of our lovely local customers yon't won't have failed to notice our beautiful selection of festive Fairtrade felt decorations filling our Christmas windows and on display throughout the shop too.
With several hundred designs from hanging tree decorations and stockings to beautiful wreaths and garlands, there really is something for everyone, whether you're a staunch traditionalist or are on the lookout for something super quirky this Christmas.
We are delighted to work with two fabulous British brands, both specialising in these beautiful felt creations, Bristol based Amica and Cheltenham based Felt So Good.
Their product ranges are designed in England and handmade in Nepal by incredibly skilled teams of needle felters, wet felters and embroiderers. The process is by its very nature is both environmentally friendly and pollution free as these artisan methods of production rely entirely on hand and not factories full of machines.
Both brands work extremely closely with their respective teams in Nepal, ensuring every worker is supported by fair wages and safe working conditions and the products themselves are ethically produced from 100% sheep's wool; a completely natural by-product that is biodegradable, sustainable and of course plastic free. There's so much to love about these wonderful creations.
Hanging stockings, ready to be filled by the big man, come in 3 designs - mistletoe, holly and jolliest of Santa's - these are beautifully decorative as well as functional and would look stunning pinned to the fireplace as we countdown to Christmas. We also have a range of mini hanging stockings for the tree that include the very recently received alphabet stockings - each of these sweet stockings has been wet felted, with an additional embroidered letter and needle felted character or decoration such as a gingerbread man, santa hat or snowflake. So cute and on my shopping list for every member of the family this year.
Traditional decorations include felted mistletoe sprigs (which we have been hanging in place of the real thing for a couple of years now), wreaths of holly, angel tree toppers, garlands of christmas puddings and brussel sprouts and hanging decorations that include robins and doves.
If you're after something a little sillier the brand new pigs in blankets would have to be my pick (officially called swaddling piglets if you're trying to search online), available with either a holly or mistletoe trim. We have lots more piggies to choose from, include the sweetest guinea pig in a Santa hat with the menagerie of other animals spanning just about every creature you might dare to imagine. Dinosaurs, dogs, sloths, sharks, reindeer, rabbits, cats, donkeys, owls, foxes, koalas, llamas..... I could go on forever!
