About Julia Hilbrandt

Industrial felt has provided the challenge to work in a way different than with other fabrics. I think of my process as construction, and the result is architectural in design. Often,the fabric itself determines the end result. The density and thickness of the felt provides structure and limitations in design, both at the same time. Every bag is a process that takes me to the next bag and the next design.As well as creating bags and purses, I also make a line of home accessories as well as table runners, coasters and pillows.
