Author’s fabrics

Creating a fabric from wool and other natural fabrics is a known, well-tried but never-boring process, which often surprises with newly discovered unique fabric felting techniques. Felting on silk, linen or cotton is a labour- and time-intensive process which requires particular care, patience, skills to manage large wet wool areas and physical strength. The felting involves piercing of wool pile to be embedded in the fabric which then shrinks forming the play of textures.

Felted fabric is used for making unique clothes, composing multi-textural colourful scarves, accessories and elements for interior.

2 artistic clothing collections from hand-felt fabrics and accessories have been created in cooperation with designer Ramune Strazdaite: “Jei ne grybai ir ne uogos“ (If not for mushrooms and berried) (2005) and “Skrido oro lėktuvėlis“ (A small airplane in flight) (2006). The collections were presented in fashion festival Mados Infekcija (Fashion Infection) held at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius. Later, the clothing collections were presented to the Japanese audience in Tokyo.
