Etsy Feature: Dutch Felt Art

Etsy Feature: Dutch Felt Art
Art comes in so many wonderful and creative forms.
One of my favorite types of textile art forms comes in the 
realm of felt art. Felt is the first textile known in the history
of mankind...dating from the 7th - 2nd centuries B.C.
Archaeologists have unearthed fragments of felt dating back
to the Bronze Age. Throughout central Asia, where some of
the oldest felts have been found, Turkman nomads made their
tents, clothes, and floor coverings from the material and it
consequently became a significant part of many religious rituals.
People learned to make felt before they could spin, weave or knit.
Today, felt is a way of molding fibres into modern works of art.

I am delighted to feature a very special Etsy shop Dutch Felt Art.
This wonderful and talented felt artist is name Monique. Her gorgeous
felt creations will inspire you. I adore her fabulous designs and brilliant
use of bold colors. Each one of her designs are like wearable pieces of
modern art. She uses natural materials made from mother nature. Her
fabulous felt creations are made with love and her greatest inspiration
is her beautiful daughter.

Monique is also the founder of WWES (World Wide Etsy Sellers).
She has created this site to help organize and support other Etsy
artists from around the world. I am so proud to be a part of this
wonderful group of amazing and talented artists. They are very
supportive and truly special people. You can discover more of
these fantastic artists and their Etsy shops on the WWES blog:
