Jigisha Petal, the founder and designer of UNNU, is also the maker that breathes life into her own design. Her training as a painter informs her visual language and aesthetics in felt. As a designer, her inspirations come from the process of felting and properties of the fibers. And her involvement in the entire process of making has turned her into a true artisan.
"It is my ambition to push the potential of the traditional craft of making felt in India, and to make it more desirable by combining new technologies with that spirit of traditional handcraft."
