Industrial felt production at Brand Felt of Canada

Toronto, Canada, 2008.

Produced by Cooper-Hewitt with the cooperation of
Brand Felt of Canada

Fashioning Felt presents an extraordinary range of felt. From two-dimensional carpets to three-dimensional environments, each work reveals the virtuosity of both the material and the designers. The exhibition and book focus on felt that has been produced by traditional hand- or machine-felting processes; they exclude non-woven felt and techniques, in order to underscore the essential elements of feltmaking — wool fiber, agitation, moisture, and pressure.

On view at Cooper-Hewitt March 6—September 7, 2009
