ART OF MAKING
DEOK & JUN
It all started with the wool felt. The moment we laid eyes on its range of brilliant colors and felt its rich, thick texture, we were gripped with the idea of creating something from this wonderful material. We grew even more determined after learning that Merino wool felt is the oldest unwoven fabric, and has a number of impressive properties, including that it is durable, shock resistant, water-repellant and germ-free.
Wool Felt Research
Felt’s vibrant colors inspired us to explore how this oldest form of sustainable fabric to humankind has been used since 700BC. From Odysseus’ helmet lined in felt to Beuy’s felt suits of Fluxus art movement, we were impelled to embark on our own felt journey.
