Felt You Up
Felt You Up creates one of a kind scarves, wraps and felt hats using natural dyes and botanical prints.
Eco printed scarves and wraps are slowly hand dyed with natural dyes and printed with leaves, flowers and foliage growing on the Sunshine Coast. Foliage is collected throughout the year to reflect the changing seasons on the coast. All natural fibres are ethically sourced such as silk, merino, pashmina, linen and organic cotton.
Unique felt hats are patiently wet felted with merino wool and silk, or steamed and blocked. These hats are perfect in all weather conditions.
Akaleka Owleye is a self taught fibre artist with a passion for natural dyes, eco prints, felting and fibre.
All of her creations are one of a kind. Scarves and wraps are naturally dyed using sustainable plant dyes. The botanical prints are created from leaves, flowers and foliage collected from her garden in Wilson Creek.
The changing seasons inspire and reflect the changes in the garden which shines through in the garments. Growing food, flowers and collecting leaves is the perfect place to gather inspiration for the dye pot.
