dZi (pronounced “ZEE”) imports felted products from Nepal and helps over 500 women artisans to make a living while producing beautiful products such as felt birdhouses. Michu, a felt artisan, says this: “I have learned many things and been promoted since I began felting. Now my family’s income can afford to send our two children to study management in university.” 

Felting is a labor-intensive process and involves many stages and people to create beautiful products. Watch this video to find out more and meet some of the artisans in Nepal:
