Artisans are able to work from home, giving them flexibility to attend to their family’s needs while earning a high salary. And each woman signs their rug before it gets shipped off, so customers know who made their piece of art and can than thank them personally by sending them an email. Furthermore, because every rug is individually made, customers can choose between one of FeltBallRug.com’s beautiful, pre-designed rugs or design their own custom rug using their New Design Tool. You can visit their website to learn more about the rugs they create and the artisans that craft them.
Nepal is one of the most beautiful countries in the world known for its colors, culture, and mountains. However, it also has one of the poorest economies. Due to lack of education and the social norms in Nepal, Nepalese women struggle to gain power and economic means to support themselves and their family. FeltBallRug.com’s aspiration is to provide these women with a craft, vocation, and income that they can feel proud of, empowered by, and use to provide for their family. Each of their team members in Nepal has their own story about how they have been able to create a better life through their work making Felt Ball Rugs. Be sure to have a look at the video embedded at the end of the post and learn about the fascinating “making-of” process.
