Felt & Leather Collection
The Story of Felt & Leather
For Filzfelt, a commitment to environment is already in their DNA. Wool is a natural renewable fiber that comes from sheep. It’s biodegradeable, rapidly renewable (once shorn, it grows back!), and has a small carbon and water footprint relative to other materials. It has inherent durability, dye-ability, and beauty that is difficult to achieve with synthetic fibers.
FilzFelt was founded by “two felt-loving designers,” and the love FilzFelt continues to show for this material is evident. By the time we sat down with Filzfelt, the company was already finding ways of upyclying and downcycling the different types of felt remnants, offcuts, and end of bolt excess. They thought it was just too beautiful to throw out. But as Filzfelt continues to grow, more felt excess is created, and they’ve been looking to find more creative uses for this material.
