— ART, FASHION & MORE !
When I get something to do in the Lower East Side, I usually pop in Top Hat, one of my favorite gift shops in New York. Looking at their unique, thoughtful and well-curated merchandise which is from worldwide including furniture, stationery, home goods, artwork, accessory, and kid’s products, I always become excited and out of control as if by magic. Meanwhile, I fell in love with “Woolfiller” which is the invention of Heleen Klopper, a Netherlands-based designer who has been fascinated for years by fabrics, especially wool and felt.
According to Sweet Bella which is the online shopping site for Top Hat,
“Woolfiller repairs holes and hides stains in woolen jumpers, cardigans, jackets and carpets, or other woolen things. By using the unique qualities of wool, it attaches itself automatically to a surface by means of minute scales. It’s an easy and original way to repair the holes in woolen garments, rugs, curtains or other textile products. A new solution for an age old problem, Woolfiller fixes will stay through the wash.”
!!! WHAT a charming product to maintain my favorite wool items. I not only like to keep my old clothes but also want to take some different essence for my daily outfit, so I immediately found in Woolfiller that it has fun and ideal solutions.
About the contents;
-Combined with 5 different colors of woolen fiber made in the Netherlands – Varied in color palette
-Two felting needles that anybody can use (Isn’t it so helpful? )
-One form block
***Additionally, thanks to the character of fabric which is hairy and soft, it is very easy to tear into any size by hand.
Among the different color palettes, I imagined limitedless possibilities how all my woolen items would survive from now on and took a little long to decide the best color palette for myself. (Probably I’ve stared at each color palette alternatively for 20 minutes before the purchase. And I got thirsty because of my concentration and excitement about the products. Eh.)
…After all I purchased fuschia! Okay, I look forward to checking the condition of my woolen items out before spring cleaning, but I think I will be excited too much about thinking how the fiber works when I begin repairing – as if I am a little girl that can never stop playing with her toys.
