Felt Thursday: (Part 2) Kathryn Walter

part 2 of thursday is coming a little late - you'll have to excuse our tardiness, but we think this will be worth the wait.

next up: kathryn walters. a visual artist and designer, kathryn's interest in felt is inspired by a family connection to it going back four generations. in 1997, she began researching the material and published a book on it for the Textile Museum of Canada. she loves its sustainability as a renewable, recycled fiber -- in addition to its aesthetic value.

kathryn is also the founder of FELT, a company that specializes in industrial manufactured felts and is unique in its commitment to a material rather than a market.

her products are the epitome of modern style: durable, versatile, and eco-friendly.
