Multicolor Felt Trivet

I really like this item and, because I was so impressed with it, I purchased two additional ones for friends. I especially like that they are handmade by ladies in Nepal and I'm sharing that info with ladies I'm sending them to.More > < Less

Colorful and well made

I gave it as a gift and I think the gal was surprised and loved it. She had traveled to Nepal, where I think it was made. She has also worked with felt, so this was very appropriate to go into her house.More > < Less

Vilt Van Ver - Handmade Felt Ball Trivet

About Vilt Van Ver

Circular Cheer

These trivets aren’t only unique and beautiful—they’ve got a backstory that will make you feel good about having them in your home.

Fair trade women's groups in Nepal make felt balls from 100% high-quality wool, and then string together 100 of these lively little spheres. Nepal is known for its felting, and it shows in these striking, thoughtfully designed pieces.

Use these heat resistant handicrafts for resting or serving hot dishes, pans, or teapots. The bright, fun colors also make them a great accent for a bookshelf or table, and the mix of colors means they’ll fit in with almost any decorating style. Plus, you’ll get the heartwarming feeling of knowing that you’re helping women in Nepal—a notoriously oppressive place for them—earn living wages with their craft.

Founder Marianne Monster created Vilt Van Ver (“Felt from Far”) in order to combine her creativity with running her own business. After traveling to Nepal in 2013, she decided to work with a Nepalese organization that offers fair wages and conditions to women, helping them become financially independent.

Give this delightful trivet as a gift or keep it for your own home—it's cheerful, unexpected, and meaningful.
