Super excited to be sharing one of our customer's felt journey today. I say it over and over again but it's awesome when our customers share their projects with us! So you can only imagine how happy I was when Morgan one of the co founders of Vàs (soon to be up on kickstarter) reached out via our Facebook page and shared with us and our followers the cool things they are doing with our wool felt. If the title wasn't a good enough clue, Vàs is a company that designs these beautiful vertical/wall planters out of felt.
Their story is about a group of students that got together just a few months back during Spring semester with a common interest, sustainable design. A nature hike lead them to a local farmers market that had a "farm to table" approach, which ended up being their inspiration to create a sustainable product that had the same concept; being able to bring herbs and other plant life into a consumers home.
The goal: to be able to bring indoor greenery with a visually interesting, modern wall piece.
And what better material to use then felt, an eco-friendly textile that alone is known as a sustainable raw material, especially when it's natural felt like 100% wool. The team of three came up with felt planters that are different from what we've seen in the market. A design that is not only sustainable but recycled and aesthetically pleasing and lets not forget to mention the design features: modularity, but it's adaptable, and has storage space.
The perfect solution for urban dwellers who can only dream of having a garden or growing their own herbs. Or simply adding greenery indoors, be it in the home or the workspace. Just think of the colour possibilities! We couldn't be more happy that The Felt Store is part of these young designers dream to bring such a wonderful product into the market! Definitely check out their website for more info or just swoon over their Insta feed! Or better yet make sure to keep your eye out on Kickstarter and help them out!
Design, hang, and plant. Vàs can be rearranged in all sorts of shapes and patterns!
