Artisan Inspiration: NataliyaMalik

My style trend is Handmade Accessories: Felted Scarves, Collars, Shawls, Handbags, Covers, Wall Decor and many more.
Everything that I create, I constitute a pattern and I always count the amount of material since I use only high quality materials. My products are made of wool, natural fabric, natural fiber, water and natural Turkish olive soap and because of these materials; my products easily withstand rain and snow. My products are soft, thin, cloud-like in texture and very long lasting.
Felt is the oldest form of fabric and is becoming popular as people rediscover the versatility and durability of it. Since it may be the oldest fabric known to man, there are many references to felt in ancient writings since it’s not woven and doesn’t require a loom for its production.
The process of felting doesn’t need expensive materials or equipment. Just about anyone can add soapy water to fleece, make a felted mass, control the outcome and then quality felt is achieved through experience and learning. Aside from choosing the best type of fiber for the application, one must consider the layout of fibers for consistent felt, the weight of wool in relation to the area of its distribution to determine shaping, the amount of soap to use and the temperature of water.
It’s hard work, but it’s my passion and one of the things I absolutely love to do, especially when I make them for happy owners!
