Gorgeous mobile of felt balls hung on a metal hoop. Hoop measures 8.25″ in diameter. Assorted colors. Stunning work from the village of Sertung!
Made in Nepal.
One of the oldest forms of fabric, felt served as an essential feature and necessity of life for the nomadic tribes of Asia where the technique is thought to have originated.
Due to its remote location, Ganesh Himal Trading had to be creative with the raw materials used for products made by this group. The materials used to make their products are primarily recycled and are transported on the backs of the villagers over a two day mountain trek to their community. Lack of tools and electricity create another obstacle to producing products. Determined to provide economic opportunity to women in this village following the devastating earthquake of April 2015, Ganesh Himal Trading combined simple skill with beautiful detail to make a variety of products!
