About

Hand felted, artfully crafted objects for the home. From Brooklyn NY

I created this line of home furnishings and accessories 2 years ago in 2011. The line is mainly made up of soft goods created from high quality deadstock (remnant) fabrics from fashion houses, so the editions are small to medium sized and created in the US. The furniture line is currently made up of one-of-a-kind pieces restored and reupholstered with bespoke fabrics. New to 2013 is a line is cast brass hardware, created by using an age-old wax carving method and lost wax casting. Custom work is available by request.

Focusing on hand felting to create the edgy, contemporary graphics and illustrations, the designs are manually worked into the base fabrics of wool and cashmere using the extremely labor intensive process of needle and wet felting. The needle felting process is similar to tattooing, which has inspired some of the flash tattoo imagery. There’s also a narrative to the line of tongue-in-cheek humor and a nod to sometimes deviant behavior. In the same way Edward Gorey was both macabre and silly, or Yoshitomo Nara creates a “creepy-cute” style, I try to evoke two occasionally contrasting impressions from one design. The edginess of the subject matter is often tempered by the soft, tactile materials to create an unexpected result.

These designs are all made by felting on 100% Wool or Wool / Cashmere blends on the face and (usually) Linen backs. Each piece is hand-made, thus unique with slight variances between them. In an effort to both have a made in NY line and be as ecologically responsible as possible, I buy deadstock fabrics so each season will have a new look and thus keep the line fresh.
