GAMCHA

Fair Trade Products  --  Made by hand in Nepal

Handmade felt Products for the young and young at heart

Since year 2000, Søbogaard has been working in Nepal and along with our Nepalese friends, we started a lot of activities through the years. The latest initiative is handmade felt products for children, which we call Gamcha. Our felt products come from Friends Handicraft near Kathmandu.  In 2004, Shanti and Nirjala began to make felt. Since then the production has expanded quickly for the two women and they now have more than 125 employees, mostly women. Our goal by selling felt is to create more jobs for women in Nepal, which rarely have the same terms as men.

The felt is made of 100% wool from New Zealand and is of the highest quality. The wool is dyed with colors that are 100% AZO-free.
