PenFelt: felt wearables, sculpture & workshops.
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.

Owner, Maker, Designer, Duchess Of Felt
LeBrie Rich is an artist living in Portland, Oregon. Her work emphasizes experimentation in materials and processes and often employs pattern, print and fiber. She started PenFelt in 2004 and still makes each felt item one at a time.
Most things are made of merino wool, and merino blended with silk, angora or tencel for shimmer and softness. I dye all my fiber with long-lasting acid dyes before felting.
Everything in my shop is produced in a smoke and pet free studio.
