I'm FELTing Creative Today

I have noticed a new trend in design lately.  That is the use of Felt.  When I think about felt, I think about when I was in Arts & Crafts in grade school.  But now I see this sustainable material making a huge comeback and statement!  I love the reinvention of this fabric and the unique application designers have come up with.

I came across this Toronto-based designer Kathryn Walter and her work with felt is absolutely breath-taking.  Her business Felt Studio is booming and works only with felt.  Felt is a sustainable textile that is extremely durable and made from wool/natural resources. Take a look at some of her amazing installations...
