Wild Woolie Birdhouse - Fish, Nepal

This adorable yet functional birdhouse will delight children and adults of all ages.  It can be hung outside as well as inside, and small birds like wren, chickadee, nuthatch and titmouse will go inside.  It is made of 100% naturally water repellant wool, so when it does get wet on the surface it dries out fairly quickly. The wool is also dirt and mold resistant.  Colors will fade in direct sun after a few months, but the body will keep its shape in even the harshest weather.  It will last forever in a protected place such as a porch or inside.  

Measures approximately 10" x 6" (size will vary due to handmade nature).

ABOUT THE ARTISANS

Our birdhouses are handmade by women in a fair trade cooperative in Katmandu, Nepal. They are made using sustainably harvested materials including natural sheep wool, a hemp hanging cord and a carved bamboo perch.  Azo-free dyes are used as well.  The cooperative employs over 300 women, who work in clean, safe conditions and receive fair wages.  The women are able to work at home which enables them to take care of their children. Your purchase not only helps the artisans but but assists in maintaining a cultural tradition of Nepal.
