About

"Herdja", an ancient Norse word meaning shepherd, explores the art of wet felting by creating a diverse line of both whimsical and utilitarian objects. By controlling the entire process, from purchasing the wool at local farms to hand-dying the finished product, Herdja guarantees the highest quality sustainable wares. The felt is made in a humble army tent set up in the back yard using ancient methods to process wool and make felt. The work is inspired by the unruly nature of wool and the centuries of people who have attempted to tame it.
