Designer Margaret van Bekkum uses felt to makes all sorts of interior products, like pillows and wall carpets. Some of her felts are made of unusual materials, such as copper, and camel and dog hair.
Felting with red hot or cold copper creates a surprising effect and a soft and touchable material, producing diffuse light.
The base felt van Bekkum uses is made of a blend of Merino wool, silk or alpaca wool. Felt absorbs CO2 and is a wonderful material to improve acoustics.
