FELTED by UNNU
Jigisha Petal, 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."
