Project Description

Felters - Nieu Bethesda

A group of six enterprising women, led by Charlotte Malgas, have started a line of decor products. Woollen fleece felt balls are dyed and decorated with beads and binding tape to make colourful and cheerful pieces for any room.

The Felters’ work has featured at trade fairs and at the Ubuntu Village at the World Summit. The women are always looking for new ideas to keep their products fresh and to sustain the project that has become essential in Nieu Bethesda. “Money comes in which means more homes have food to eat,” they say. You can find the Felters’ products on sale at their workshop alongside the Congregational Church and at the Outsiders shop in the village.
