About

Feel for Felt. Woolen stories for everyday.

My name is Vera Frederiksen Zhotkevich and I am a felt-maker and a textile artist, living in Sweden and work with material from the nature. I create work of artistic features inspired by the barren Nordic nature, its harsh beauty and the affluence of impressions that you get from it, resulting in individualised textile items. I’m both designer and maker and I work after Arts and Crafts- principies. My company VeraZ (recently re-named, former V-Design Feltstudio) works with design and manufacturing of unique textile items.
Felting provides amazing opportunities yielded by both delicate garments and unique decorative pieces for interior design. The concept is to merge the craft, the modern lifestyle, the aesthetic and the advantages in the material itself. The felted articles all employ the characteristic wool qualities from different breeds. VeraZ combines the focus of Swedish new wool with selected recycled textiles.
Most objects are bespoke/one of a kind where wool and woven fabrics merge both in texture and pigmentation. I make things for everyday use with a little fairy-tale within every product and I love to convey the feeling of being well grounded, roots to keep tight to what is loved most – the feelings that you get when being embraced by natures deep and beauty. In my felt-art I mostly use wool from Swedish sheep and alpacas, but I also use other kinds of wool from controlled origin. If I use fabric for nunofelting I choose primarily reused/redeployed fabric. I dye the textile either with biodegradable acid-dyes or with plants from my own garden and surroundings. I make a slow dying according to time and let the natural processes take the time needed. I believe in create things in a slow way with an idea and a feeling that they will stay put for a long time and carry on a story within from one generation to another.
