This fair trade orange and multicolored felted wool potholder with floral applique is hand made in Nepal. It is approximately 8" x 8" in diameter and features a floral design contrasting with the primarily orange potholder. Because each one is handmade, patterns and colors may vary slightly from the images, but will be very similar. This felted wool trivet is beautiful and durable, and its purchase helps artisans in Nepal earn a living wage. The floral appliques are very sturdily sewn on. Felted wool is a great insulator with a high burn point, and is durable yet non-abrasive on your counters; qualities that make it ideal for a hot pad.
