Follow me on the way of felt…

Due to Japanese tradition, there are many ways of life. There is the way of sword, or Chado, the way of tea…

My way is the way of felt. It begun in far East-Siberia, on the high Ukok plateau in the Altai Mountains, where Iron Age burial kurgans were found in ice lenses on the continuous permafrost. In this tombs were discovered wonderfully preserved mummies, their bodies tattooed with fabulous zoomorphic animals. One of them is the famous Ice Maiden, also called “Ukok Princess”. The burials were full with wonderful carpets and other textile pieces, most of them made from felt, like the swan in one of the Pazyryk-kurgan, unbelievable designed saddle covers or beautiful clothing, embroidered and decorated with gold and fur.

Now I go this way, inspired especially by this and also other native and nomad cultures from all over the world, existing now and in the past.

Here you´ll find felt jewelry, bags, belts and also embroidered clothing made from boiled wool…
