Hello, my name is Catalina. I am an environmentalist, I work advocating for solar and wind power in California. I am also an artist,
I create clothes made from Felt, which is a non-weaved fabric made of virgin wool mixed with soap. It is believed Felt is the first textile material created by human-race, much earlier than weaving or spinning.
As most important discoveries, felt was uncovered by noticing that animal hair spontaneously rubbed and compressed with grease, produced a strong lump. By kneading both elements repeatedly, a sort of strong and almost waterproof fabric was obtained, which slowly replaced the use of fur and leather in clothing manufacture.
Felt is biodegradable and environment respectful, due to manual elaboration, free from fuel combustion. I love the opportunity to be involved with your organization.
