How is felt made?

Have you ever wondered how felt is made? In 2009 Cooper-Hewitt held an exhibition, "Fashioning Felt" exploring the history of felt and the versatility of the textile. The exhibition looked at felt as a contemporary textile and how it is used today in product design, architecture, fashion and industrial design. The exhibition collaborated with Brand Felt to show us exactly how felt is made. Check out the video below to get a glimpse into the manufacturing process!
