Packaged plastic free. Carefully hand-felted from 100% raw sheep wool with soap and water. The felt is made in sheets or moulded round a wooden resist, dried in the sun on the workshop roof and then hand-stitched in the workshop. The shades of grey, brown and cream are completely natural, while other colours are produced using azo-free dyes. Wool is a natural insulator, with high breathability, and it resists odours due to its natural antibacterial properties. Wool is one of the most sustainable fabrics in existence; renewable and biodegradable, it requires relatively little water for its production. Our wool is mulesing free.

The colourful pote necklaces are a symbol of luck for the married women in Nepal especially in the Brahmin, Kshetries and other Hindu communities. The pote beads used in AURA QUE jewellery designs are bought locally in Kathmandu. Read our blog post about how our pote bead jewellery is made here.
These felt designs are handmade by a large World Fair Trade Organisation certified collective in Kathmandu, Nepal. AURA QUE started working with the group in 2019. The artisans benefit from numerous initiatives, including allowances for family medical care and children's education, and a savings scheme. The organisation is active in reducing its environmental impact and has moved to electric firing for ceramics and away from kerosene-based firing.
