This friendly lion is ready to roam and roar through the land of make believe. The Lion Felt Finger Puppet is handcrafted by artisans working with the Association for Craft Producers in Kathmandu, at the foot of the Himalayas. The felt used to make this finger puppet is dyed using AZO-free dyes. The workshop is incorporating innovative processes to protect the environment. Their office runs partially off solar power, and they have reduced their fuel consumption by fifty percent. Their office has a rainwater catchment system. The rainwater is reused in the felting process.
