THE EVEREST WOOL STORY
I stock a range of wool, hemp and cotton products hand made in Nepal. By working there I designed our unique Australian animal finger puppet range in felt. They are realised in robust water felt bases with accurate needle felt details. This method was developed by us and is now recognised and attempted by other workshops in Nepal as a superior construction method.
My Australian designs showcase a character of shared heritage. Truly Australian but painstakingly handcrafted from high quality New Zealand sheep fleece by teams of skilled artisans in Nepal. It is a slow process. The individual’s working skills and decisions in the final stages make each piece unique.
I have strong transparent relationships with the families who manage the production of our goods. We have ever improving good production environments. The people who make our products work in safe, sound conditions with fair wages and holidays. It is sustainable work that enables life changing choices.
Our knitted pure wool garments are in a style that reflects traditional Nepali cultural origins. They are soft and cosy, cool weather pieces. Whether in classic natural tones or brighter colours, all are uniformly finished, lined and checked to ensure that they provide high quality winter comfort. We love them and we know that you will too!
