Oh, how I love felt! It’s been a while since I’ve featured any handmakers who are working with this soft and flexible material, so I though I’d better make up for that. I don’t think I could do any better than this collection from Paola and her lux Filamento Store.
Most of us probably don’t think ‘felt’ and ‘cufflinks’ at the same time. It’s a good thing Paola does, because this interchangeable felt cufflink system of hers is just blowing my handmade socks off! (Yes, I’m wearing the most AMAZING handmade italian socks right now.) You get 30 different felt circles and a pair of silver plated cufflinks. This may be the most practical and fantastical set of cufflinks ever.
There are so many great items in the Filamento store. There’s rings, earrings and necklaces in the most fab color combos you can imagine. Paola also offers a lot of customization options, so you really can make these as unique as you like. She even has a Friendship Set, as seen above. You can get one for yourself and have one to share with that special someone. What a great idea! Here are a few more favorites from the shop. Felt fiends, proceed at your own risk. I will not be held responsible for any mass felt-related purchases that may occur or your temprorary sense of felt-induced euphoria.
