Shaped like a shoe, this unique handfelted holder weighs about 1/2 lb empty. It is made by skilled artisans working in a fair trade production center in Kathmandu, Nepal. Use as paper weight and a pen and pencil holder or to hold flowers. Water will wick through the natural wool fibers so be sure to place a dish if using as a planter. If it gets wet, wool breaths and will also dry out naturally.
5 inches long x 2 inches wide x 3 inches tall. Made with 100% natural wool and non-toxic, azo-free dyes.
