Felt beehive hanging toy from Shared Earth.

We absolutely adore our felt products. They’re made from 90% wool, which is often broken down recycled wool, 5% cotton and the same for acrylic. It’s sourced from local markets in India, close to a supplier in Mumbai and its strong defined shape comes from the specific felting technique used by them that differs from the traditional Nepalese felting technique often seen. We think they’re quirky and fun and are sure to bring lots of joy into peoples lives.
