Fabulous Felt: Ill-ustration

06Oct06

If you’re a fan of Nani Marquina’s Roses Rug, then you’ll undoubtedly go even more crazy for German designer Mary-Ann Williams felt rugs, wall panels and lighting. Her company Illu Stration has been credited for innovating the felting method that we’ve all come to love. The textures and colors are stunning–up to 1000 Pantone colors. Some FG readers have shared that the quality of these pieces is unparalleled.

The Fab Factor: Handcrafted in Germany, these wool felt furnishings are biodegradable, naturally fire-resistant and recyclable. The felt is Wool Mark labeled, and dyes are chemical-free. Leftover scraps are incorporated into new pieces or donated to local schools for arts classes. The Atelier where Illu Stration rugs are made was designed with energy conservation aspects in mind.
