She-Yeti Ornament

Not your grandmother's Abominable Snowman. The She-Yeti Ornament is sure to be the cutest thing on your tree. This ornament is handcrafted from cotton and wool felt in the foothills of Himalayas. Felt refers to non-woven fabric formed when wool fibers lock together under heat, moisture and pressure. This bonding of fibers is called felting. The Association for Craft Producers has been at the forefront of reviving this traditional skill in Nepal. It is an important folk tradition in Nepal, where people living in mountainous regions once made felt carpets.

THE MAKERS

Association for Craft Producers (ACP) is a nonprofit group that provides design, marketing, management and technical services to low-income artisans, the majority of them women, providing regular, fair wages. In addition to a central production and design workshop, the association maintains a full-time staff. ACP also owns retail outlet called Dhukuti in Kathmandu, Nepal. ACP has successfully balanced its business priorities with a strong sense of social obligation. Producer benefits include medical and counseling services, a savings program and retirement fund, paid maternity and paternity leave, education allowance to encourage education especially of daughters, low-interest loans for producer groups, clothing and household allowances, and seminars on health, nutrition and women’s rights. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from ACP since 1987.
