Felt Bird Houses | Lawn and Garden
A bird in the hand is better than . . . Oh, whoops, no. That adage doesn't quite fit!
Attract birds to your backyard with these colourful little hand-felted birdhouses, lovingly handcrafted in Tibet.
What we really mean to say is that a bird attracted to your backyard provides not only enjoyment and delight for the whole family, it is also a terrific educational opportunity!
This hand felted wool birdhouse is made of sustainably harvested, naturally water repellent wool. Surface moisture from dew, rain or snow quickly dries in the open air. Wool is also naturally dirt and mold resistant. The 1.25 inch hole can be enlarged to 1.5 inches to appeal to larger birds. Measures 9 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
In the heart of the old Tibetan quarter in Lhasa, just a ten minute walk from the Jokhang temple, is the Dropenling Handicraft Center. Dropenling means “giving back for the betterment of all sentient beings.” The program is the brainchild of the Tibet Artisan Initiative (TAI), a project of the Tibet Poverty Alleviation Fund a Boston-based organization founded in 1997 to help Tibetans in Tibet.
