Felt and fair trade, too

England’s Ethical Home Furnishings company, Biome, makes a door-sized, felt Advent calendar perfect for ushering in the holiday. The brightly colored pockets can be refilled each year with treats. More importantly, the fair trade calendar is handmade by — and also benefits — a small cooperative of women in Kathmandu, Nepal.
