These handcrafted guardian angels are exclusively made in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu and surroundings for our museums. The base material of this product is wool, which is matted, condensed, pressed and then (eco-friendly) dyed in various beautiful colours. By using unique and traditional Nepalese techniques, this product is a small work of art.
You can also purchase these guardian angels individually.
This product was produced by Return to Sender for Tropenmuseum. Return to Sender sells handcrafted products made by women in the poorest regions of the world. This helps them make a living for themselves and their families. Since the start of this project, thousands of women around the globe have been able to make the step towards a better life.
