About

Nature's best way of keeping you warm ♥

It all started in 2011 when one seemingly ordinary afternoon in Moscow I found myself holding a piece of soft, warm woollen roving, making my first clutch purse. Ever since that moment I have been a very happy feltmaker, or fibre artist, as some may put it. Felting has become my favourite way of not only channeling creativity, expressing emotions, exploring and experimenting, but also of making people warm, cozy and happy.

Now I live in a beautiful st Petersburg.

Originally a painter and book illustrator with rich background in artistry, I started studying clothing design and sewing in 2011. I never stop making sketches and learning new techniques, which help me fulfill my dreams into one-of-a-kind things that you can see in this shop.

Wool and silk are marvellous gifts of Nature. These two materials can be so perfectly combined together in felting, that I feel compelled to do it. I strive to make each garment sturdy and comfortable, yet make them an "art to wear" pieces - unique, sweet, heartwarming and totally hand-made.

I use only natural and softest, high quality materials picked carefully from all over the world (Italy, Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain); however, most of my wool still comes from the local British producers. As for silk fabrics, I buy them mainly from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

While felting, I don't usually use rubber gloves because I believe in wool saving the good vibes of the maker through the warmth of the hands for the customers to enjoy. Therefore, you can be sure every garment has a piece of my soul in it.
Feeling for Nature, I also try to minimize the amount of water used for felting, making it an environmentally friendly process, and use only natural, chemical-free olive oil soap.

Felted wool seems to be a truly magical material. It contains in itself all the goodness of Nature. It is soft, pliable, eco-friendly and as ecological as it can be. It always keeps perfect temperature of the body, no matter what conditions prevail outside. On top of that, it has been part of human history for thousands of years!

Hope you will find something you like in my shop. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to make a custom order.

Sincerely,
Julia
