As a result of felt craft trainings since 2008, a group of about 15 herders belonging to the Women's Community Council produce 150 handicrafts which are sold in our Le Villaret visitor center each summer. They have also begun producing items for sell in local markets and for their friends and family.
The felt comes from sheep's wool collected each summer and made into felt. The women then gather together each spring and cooperatively make the products for sale in France.
All the proceeds from the sale of these products are sent back to the women.
