About

Hello, my name is Katerina.

I am a professional Interior Designer serving greater Colorado area.
I love textiles, all kinds of it, especially ones that have interesting texture that you want to touch and stroke for no particular reason.

Being born in Russia I loved to come to my grandmother home. She had that ability to make just about anything with her two hands. She crocheted, sew, knitted, tattered, embroidered, cooked (fantastically).
She had those felt pieces on her walls and sofas that she inherited from her motherland in the south of Russia. Those where called koshma. She explained me how they where made, but was not able to show. It was impossible to buy fleece back then.

Years nave passed. Ones, in a search of a live color and nubby texture produced naturally and sustainably I came across of a felt making process. I was ecstatic when my first pieces came to live.

The process of wet felting is very labor intensive, but I love every step of it, from imagining and drawing the future thing, through the sorcery of hand dying, to the actual felting (hours of rolling and working the wet fiber.)

Being a professional Designer my felt work often comes to the rescue when I need a precise compliment to the exotic rug, or want to create a floor runner out of the customer's child drawing.

My hopes for the Etsy shop are that you will love the simple honesty of ancient material as much as I do :).

Have a wonderful day.
