Felt So Good was born in 2009, when Founder Adele Zara Collinson was working in Asia and came upon the vibrancy and potential of using felt as a sustainable, eco-friendly material. Since then, Adele has been working closely with a team of artisans in Nepal to produce high quality, ethically produced, sustainable products that don’t compromise on design, all whilst showcasing the techniques and skills of their team. Felt So Good now employs over 250 talented people and continues to expland through providing skills training and secure employment in remote areas of Nepal.
And Felt So Good is proud of their success in creating a waste free and sustainable operation! They use top-quality sheep’s wool sourced from New Zealand, a completely natural by-product which is processed to the highest environmental standards and cruelty free. The dyes used to create the colors are ‘azo’ free and most are natural. The steamers used for the dying process are powered using off cuts from local carpenters, therefore reducing waste in surrounding villages and transportation of materials are minimised. In order to reduce any water wastage, Felt So Good purifies all of their own water on site, so that they can use it again. Their products are hand crafted using traditional needle felting and wet felting techniques, methods that require no machinery and therefore the production is entirely pollution free.
