Bowling Buddies by The Playful World
These incredible hand made wool felt bowling sets are hand felted, dyed and swen by women artisans in Kyrgyzstan through a fair trade workshop program.
100% wool felt outer shell with synthetic fill. Set includes 3 pins (choose from people or dogs) and 1 ball. Pins are 8" tall, ball is 3" in diameter. Eyes, nose and mouth are all stiched onto dolls, with no buttons or other material to come loose.
The workshop that produces these toys is dedicated to preserving the traditional craft of felt making with origins from early nomadic trides. The workshop is trying to improve the economic livelihood of women in their community by creating fair and sustainable employment opportunities for these disadvantaged artisans. Teh women use locally sourced 100% natural mountain sheep wool to hand felt and hand sew these toys.
Made in Kyrgyzstan.
