This fair trade felted wool trivet is hand made in Nepal. It is approximately 8" in diameter and 1" thick, and is is made of felt balls in natural shades of gray, cream and brown. Because each one is handmade, colors may vary slightly from the image. This felted wool trivet is beautiful and durable, and its purchase helps artisans in Nepal earn a living wage. Felt 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.
About the brand: Friendsheep was created by Valeria Isaacs, a zero waste entrepreneur, disability advocate, mother, wife, nature lover, and former biologist. Always passionate about ecology and sustainable living, her pursuit of those passions was interrupted when a spinal cord injury left her quadriplegic at age 22. During her recovery, Valeria has obtained a master’s degree in molecular biology, worked in contemporary art, and enjoyed living life at its fullest. In late 2015, she decided to give new meaning to her life by founding Friendsheep, with the aim of providing high quality, eco-friendly products that respect animals and the environment while also providing work and purpose to women and disabled artisans in underprivileged communities of Nepal. Friendsheep ships completely plastic-free and offsets every shipment through a Carbonfund.org partnership. It is an Eden Reforestation Projects partner and plants a tree for every item sold. It is a 1% For the Planet member, and donates approximately 20% of all net proceeds to rescues, ocean conservation and environmental nonprofits.
