Fair Trade Giant Felt Green Cactus, Four Feet Tall
This is the most fabulous faux cactus I have ever seen! Perfect for the kids room or for your southwestern decor, this sheep's wool felt cactus stands 4 feet tall.
Human sized, this cactus is an amazing accent piece and a real conversation starter. This giant sized succulent is really a big softie. Crafted by hand with sheep's wool, the soft faux prickly felt and fiberfil is snuggled over a very sturdy welded metal armature.
Note: While this cactus is soft and snuggly, there is metal inside to hold the shape. Caution should be taken when placed in a kids room or around children. THIS IS NOT A TOY.
Dimensions:4' tall x 2.5' wide. Accessories not included.
About Wild Woolies Fair Trade:
Walking into the Kathmandu production center’s reception you are immediately greeted by a cheerful ‘Namaste’ (‘I Salute the God Within You’) with hands pressed together in a prayerful expression. Proceeding into any of the production halls you’ll be greeted by a complete chorus of the same as dozens of ladies press felt into a variety of shapes, while others stitch, needle and applique to finish hundreds of different styles of decorative items for export.
Sheep’s wool is an amazingly adaptable fiber. It can be dyed any color and when hand felted using warm mildly soapy water it can be molded into any shape, or then cut and sewn together as per your imagination. Because the felting and most of the stitching process is all done by hand with natural materials that can be sustainably harvested, hand felted products have a relatively soft impact on the environment. Commercial exports of felted products from Nepal have grown exponentially since around 2000, benefiting thousands of mostly women workers, production managers and family businesses who help support their families and educate their children with their earnings.
