Rosa's Felt Shop - Inspiration Monday

 

 
 
 
Happy Monday! This is the last week of March and we have many interesting things to share with you here on the blog, so this week promises to be an interesting one!
Today we are offering a different kind of Monday inspiration. We are happy to introduce another amazing designer who joined our team. Rosa who is the master felter behind Rosa's Felt Shop.
 
 

 
 
She is a retiree who decided to give a new aspect to this stage of her life and make it more interesting, fulfilling and creative.
 
She loves to design amazing felt pieces and her interest focuses on ponchos and capes, bags, hats and other accessories.
 
She works with 100% wool that she dies herself and I was amazed to find out that she dies most of it naturally using walnuts, quince leaves, Japanese cherry leaves, St. John's wort. She wet felts her pieces and designs them inspired by the wonderful nature.
 
Visit her shop for more of her amazing pieces!

Rosa's pieces are sublime works of art. I am always fascinated by the beauty that wool felters dream up. All pieces are breathtaking and fascinating. I could look at the soft blue/grey cape forever. So, so much beautiful detail. How fascinating Rosa uses what is found in her natural environment to dye her wool. So much gorgeous inspiration to be found in this post, Maya...thank you.

Dear Maya, do have a lovely week,
Marjan

Likewise Kim. I have a soft spot for felt and I would love to learn it one day, maybe...
Using the gifts of nature to create these gives them that extra something we all appreciate handmade for.

Thank you Myrica! I esepcially like the cape, it's the second photo. I can't imagine the work invested in these - must be hard, but the end result is stunning so every effort is justified.
