The Team at Amica Felt
Here at Amica we are all about beautiful, handmade and Fair Trade felt. We offer gorgeous collections of toys, gifts, Christmas decorations and home accessory ranges. Everything is designed at our studio in Bristol, then made with great skill and to the highest quality by a fantastic team of Fair Trade craftspeople in Nepal.
In Bristol we are a small team focused on creating fantastic ideas and keeping our furry friends supplied to our loyal customers. Whether you chat to Jo on the phone, Julie & Jess at the shows or receive notes from our Christmas Elves each person is vital in keeping this company ticking.
However, it is not just the Bristol office that is pivotal in the success of Amica. Many miles away in Nepal we work with a superb Fair Trade company that help us with the product development and creation of our items.
Over the many years we have been working with the team in Nepal we have made regular visits to ensure the highest of standards are maintained and that all parties involved in making our products are working in a safe and friendly environment. Our felt is made mostly by women who are incredibly skilled and hard working. We know that by supporting fair wages and conditions we can make a real difference to the quality of their lives.
Reporting back from our last trip in February 2020 Jo & Jess can confirm that the team in Nepal are as smiley and happy as ever. Their hospitality is second to none - ask Jo about the momos she ate!
Unfortunately this year due to the current situation that is happening world wide we will be unable to visit Nepal but we are in constant contact with Team Nepal and working hard together to keep the new designs coming and keeping our warehouse shelves well stocked up throughout 2021.
