All our felt from Nepal and the Phillipines is made by fairtrade craftspeople. And unlike some companies, we don't just accept someone else's assurance that something is fairtrade. We have visited our suppliers - so we've seen where and how our felt is made. Our felt is made mostly by women who are incredibly skilled and hard working. And we know that by supporting fair wages and conditions we can make a real difference to the quality of their lives.

Of course quality is just as important as fairtrade. It's quality that ensures you keep buying from us, and that secures future employment for the people we work with.

At Amica and Felt-works we are committed to sourcing our products from fairtrade suppliers whenever possible.
