A brief felt history

According to the researchers, felt is believed to be one of the earliest textile forms (1). While there are various legends of where felt making started, some dating back to Noah's ark, popularly it's believed the process began in central Asia.

In Nepal (where our products are made) felt making is still an important part of folk tradition which has transformed into an art form. The technique was/is traditionally used to make floor mats, rugs and blankets. The rug commonly known as 'raadi' is Oon founder's first interaction with felt (which is since they landed on planet earth).
