I LOVE THESE. If you’re looking for a fun and unique gift idea for yourself (hey, why not?) or your dog-obsessed friend, consider one of these felt doggies from Eleni Creative! Each fuzzy pup is hand-stitched, hand-stuffed, and designed to look just like your beloved Fido. You can even have multiples made into a hanging mobile! Aaaaamazing.
While I was at the Tendence 2010 fair in Frankfurt Germany a few weeks ago, I discovered Bouwjaar ’63, a design firm who creates accessories, bags and other high-quality pieces in The Netherlands. They also happen to make felt dog collars and leads, accented with gray technical felt, black leather and reflective tape.
I stopped by the FilzFelt booth at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) this year and they clued me in to Cosmo’s Collars, who make collars from felt and other materials. Made from eco-friendly German felt, these collars can be easily washed in the dishwasher (top rack).
