At Babame we love any excuse to fill our homes with beautiful things. So when we saw the Felt So Good Easter decorations we couldnâ€™t resist. Felt so good specialise in making gorgeous ethical felt products. All their fairtrade decorations and accessories are designed in the UK and lovingly handmade by Nepalese cottage industries. These skilled artisans use traditional skills passed down from generation to generation and all the materials and dyes used are natural and biodegradable.
As spring arrives the days get longer and new life is all around. The Easter celebrations give us a four day weekend in April starting with good Friday. A time to spend with family, probably eat lots of hot cross buns and chocolate and fill an Easter basket with eggs during an Easter egg hunt on Sunday.
For Christians, Easter weekend is a celebration the resurrection of Christ. However, the Christian church was certainly not the first to celebrate a festival in the spring. Jewish Passover falls at the same time of year as does the spring equinox and the festival has origins in pagan traditions. So there are plenty of reasons to bring out the fairtrade easter decorations whichever god, goddess, holiday or customs are being celebrated.
Whatever your Easter traditions the Easter bunnies and little lamb hanging decorations are pretty hard to resist. And the bunny bag is the perfect vessel for kids to collect sweet treats or eggs on a hunt. They also make lovely alternative Easter gift ideas if you feel thereâ€™s likely to be excess of chocolate.
If you happening to have a reusable tree made from waste wood or even just a few stylish twigs then the hanging decorations are a must. Albert Eggstein and Amelia Egghart are great characters for telling the Easter story or playing other Easter inspired educational games and really no easter tree would be complete without a fair trade mole with specs or a surprise easter unicorn.
Felt so good also make superb Christmas decorations although we see no reason why the unicorn couldnâ€™t make a repeat appearance, and the chickens could lay a few eggs for brunch as well.
These fair trade easter decorations are also perfect to add to a bonnet for the Easter parade or use as gorgeous Easter table decorations. They would look perfect nestled amongst fresh flowers for Easter celebration dining table centrepieces or holding place cards at an Easter party. We have loads of Easter decorating ideas that go way beyond a vase of tulips and a nest full of plastic eggs, your Easter decor will never have looked so good.
While we think these felt characters make super cute Easter presents we also have loads of other ideas that make great alternatives to over-packaged chocolate eggs. And plenty of fair trade chocolate so you can still get your cocoa fix.
