Gamcha er filtprodukter håndlavet af nepalesiske kvinder. I 2004 begyndte Shanti og Nirjala at lave filt. Siden da er det gået stærkt for de 2 kvinder – fra at de lavede alt selv, er der nu mere end 125 medarbejdere, mest kvinder. Vores mål ved at sælge filt er at skabe flere arbejdsplader til kvinder i Nepal, som sjældent har de samme vilkår som mænd. Alle er velkomne til at besøge produktionsstederne, hvilket mange allerede har gjort. Filten er lavet af 100% uld, som kommer fra New Zealand og er af højeste kvalitet. Ulden er meget slidstærkt, og der bliver ikke anvendt nogle former for affaldsuld. Ulden bliver farvet med farver, som er 100% AZO-fri.

Since year 2000 Søbogaard has been working in Nepal and along with our Nepalese friends we started a lot of activities through the years. The latest initiative is handmade felt products for children, which we call Gamcha. Our felt products come from Friends Handicraft near Kathmandu. In 2004 Shanti and Nirjala began to make felt. Since then the production has expanded quickly for the two women and they now have more than 125 employees, mostly women. Our goal by selling felt is to create more jobs for women in Nepal, which rarely have the same terms as men. From being 100 employees in 2016, there are now 125 employees in 2017. Everyone is welcome to visit the production place in Nepal, which many already have done. Watch a video about the women further down the page.
The felt is made of 100% wool from New Zealand and is of the highest quality.
The wool is dyed with colors that are 100% AZO-free.
