Dharma Dog Karma Cat® pet beds and toys fuse comfort, durability and design with environmentally sustainable production and socially conscious business practices. Handcrafted of 100% natural wool by women artisans in Nepal, our products are safe for pets and healthy for our planet. We are the leading makers of pet accessories in Nepal since 2012. As members of the Pet Trade Federation and Pet Sustainability Coalition, we are committed to making the world better, for pets and their people. The wool we use for our toys and beds is not chemically cleansed, so it has a lot of lanolin in it. Lanolin is the natural oil unique to sheep’s wool and it reminds your pet of the scent of their mother. Lanolin oil conditions their paws and helps to keep their fur healthy and shiny. Using a technique called wet-felting, the only materials used in the making of these items are pure wool, natural soap and water. We use safe, non-toxic dyes in an environmentally sustainable low-impact dying process which uses less energy and produces less waste byproduct. Our products are handcrafted by women in Nepal; your purchase supports these artisans and their families, helps raise them out of poverty, and keeps crafting traditions alive.Care: The lanolin in the wool is anti-microbial and odor resistant which keeps our wool beds naturally clean. They can be vacuumed or spot cleaned with a sponge. If a bed becomes very soiled, you can wash it in the delicate cycle of a washing machine. Please support your local retailers.
