HOW IT'S MADE
Originally from the Netherlands, Renske Carbone started Papoose Felt in 2005, focusing on creating toys hand made from natural fibres, with fair labour and safe for children to play with. She works in Nepal and has developed close relationships with the extended family who create her products, visiting about 4-6 times a year to gossip, develop new work and to eat dal bhat! Papoose Felt is made from locally grown Nepalese wool by applying warm water, soap and friction to the fibres. It is a wonderfully versatile, 100% natural and organic material, and is very tactile.
