LeBrie Rich's Profile
Founded in 2004, PenFelt is a Portland, Oregon based enterprise that offers a line of handmade, hand dyed felt objects. Each item is made personally by the Duchess of Felt (LeBrie Rich). My colorful accessories and objets d’ art are known for their high-quality construction and the customer glee they provoke. My products are wet-felted merino wool, with some needle felted embelishments. Much of the fiber used is dyed in-house by yours truly.
In addition to the products featured here, I create one-of-a-kind sculpture for diverse settings including museums, galleries, and storefront windows. I also regularly teach workshops at my studio in Portland. In 2012 I taught felting in a rural community in Japan (with lots of gesturing) and in 2013 I taught at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn, New York.
