FELT Studio

Description

The FELT Studio is a laboratory that explores the material and culture of modern industrial felt through exhibitions, historical research, architectural commissions and a product line. Founded in 2000 by artist Kathryn Walter, who continues to own and operate the company, the FELT Studio remains unique in its commitment to a material rather than a market allowing it to move into numerous fields including visual art, architecture, fashion, design and material culture. The FELT Studio is based in Toronto and all FELT products are made in Canada.

The FELT Studio emphasizes sustainability. All felts are made from wool, a renewable resource with varying combinations of virgin and recycled fibres. FELT products are designed using basic geometric shapes such as squares and rectangles that enable maximum yield of material and reduced waste. Remnants and off cuts are reused in various forms from one-of-a-kind products to experimental installations.
