WOOL FACTS

 

Wool Felt

Our 100% wool felt is non-synthetic and eco-friendly. We use only highest quality New Zealand wool felt - wool is the most versatile fabric, combining many features such as strength, 100% biodegradable, renewable, sustainable textile, non-flammable and safe for use around people and pets. Most of our wool felt products are created by the application of moisture and agitation to the fibres and requires no bonding agent. We work with number of skilled artisans who are equally committed to exploring and celebrating the never-ending potential of traditional handmade felt as a modern art and craft medium, for use in functional and wearable arts and crafts.

 

Knitwear Wool

Wool we use are GOTS and OEKO-TEX standard Eco friendly and comes from New Zealand. We believe functional wearable should not be MASS produced, just quality wearables made in a sustainable way - and we have done it! Hamro Village has trained 100 knitters who are skilled and have become master knitters themselves with their already existing skills of indigenous motifs and crafts. These skilled knitters can train and empower many other emerging artisans with their craftsmanship. Our knitters come from many small surrounding villages. In a traditional Nepali society where the majority of women tend to work only in the domestic sphere, Hamro has helped these women knitters a way to gain economic stability and independence by bringing their beautifully crafted knitwear into the mainstream market.
 

Handmade Jewelry

Our jewelry reflects the rich art of the Himalayas and are meticulously hand crafted with reconstituted turquoise, coral, lapis beads and mixed metal. These materials are endowed with certain meanings. For instance, Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.
Himalayan Jewelry often astounds both by its quality and by its creativity. All our Handmade Jewelry is collected directly from the craftsman. Whether you are a collector or just looking for the perfect statement piece, you’re bound to appreciate the beauty of Himalayan jewelry.

 

Handwoven Textiles

Hamro specializes in back-strap weaving and natural dying of heavy cotton minimizing the environmental impacts. Our woven products are made of 100% pure cotton, using thick and thinner treads. Our natural dyed products are individually dyed by colour, which comes from Nepal’s nature. These colours are very soft and warm. Through the sourcing and use of local raw materials and organic dyes, our products are made in a sustainable fashion.
