The Library Cat Ornament is made at the foot of the Himalayas in Kathmandu using innovative processes to protect the environment at Association for Craft Producers (ACP). The felt is colored with AZO-free dyes while rainwater is used in the felting process from the workshops's rainwater catchment system. The ACP office strives to reduce its fuel consumption and is partially run off of solar power.
In addition to caring for the environment, ACP cares for the makers who benefit from medical and counseling services, a savings program, retirement fund, paid maternity and paternity leave, education allowance, low-interest loans, clothing and household allowances, and seminars on health, nutrition and women's rights.
