Sujata’s Story of Hope in Nepal
“So, I came here with my relative who works in this Artisan community. With her support, I learned the skills of felting and matting and became an Artisan in this workshop, too!”

Our Traditional Art of Felting
First, the dyed wool is matted into shapes with the help of paper patterns.
Then, the main body part of the bird is developed.
Once the bodies are ready, the wire legs are created.
Next, the hats and other accessories are hand stitched to attach to each bird.
Finally, we add needle felting and hand-stitched designs.
