What currency are the products listed and charged at?

Delivery is to the delivery address you nominate when placing your order. Risk and title of the goods are assigned to you upon delivery.
I've never bought a Woodfolk product before. What's the quality like?
Top notch! We use only high quality, sustainably sourced natural materials. Each of our products is hand made by experienced artisans, using techniques that have stood the test of time. Every piece goes through a rigorous quality control process in Australia.
How does Woodfolk care for the environment?
Being considerate of our environment is hugely important to us. Our Wood is a Nepalese hardwood that has been grown sustainably, we use natural or non-toxic dyes and product packaging is always carefully considered. Our 100% cotton Jewellery pouches have been handmade by a wonderful women’s organisation in Nepal. We also use 100% recycled paper, and traditional ink and hand pressed stamps for all of our branding and packaging.
How does Woodfolk make a meaningful difference to families & communities in need?
Through Social Entrepreneurship. That means trade, not aid! We supply the funding for tools, infrastructure and the necessary demand which empowers and enables our craftspeople to make a living from their master skills which have been passed down from generation to generation.
Whether it be traditional carving, natural dying, wheel-work, weaving and knitting techniques, Woodfolk prides itself on encouraging these skills and traditional methods, in order to create our uniquely beautiful and quality made products while simultaneously preserving these authentic art forms.
Woodfolk products are all proudly designed in Australia and many proudly handmade by Nepali artisans, throughout Nepal. Woodfolk is committed to working with small family-run businesses as well as Women focused organisations, creating opportunity, self-determination, support and hope in their communities through social entrepreneurship.
Our relationships in Nepal are built on trust, equality, fair trade and a long term goal of bringing meaningful change to their lives, and demonstrating a fairer alternative to businesses seeking trade with third world communities.
