Question ID: 728989
A few years ago (no more than three), I found a website for a
manufacturer of felt bags and accessories.  I didn't bookmark it, and,
like "the one that got away", I've been searching for it ever since. 
Here's the information I've managed to remember about the company and
their products:

- I believe the company was European, perhaps Dutch, Belgian or
Finnish.  I also believe it was a company rather than a single
individual or craftsperson.

- The bags were unique in that they weren't sewn, glued or affixed
together in any traditional way.  They were made of several pieces of
precisely-cut felt, the edges of which "laced" together to form the
bag.  The edges of most pieces were cut into squarish "fingers", kind
of like a series of tongue and groove joints or the teeth of a zipper.

- The site may have also sold rubber or silicone belts with a unique
closure like a zip tie or a ski boot buckle.  I'm not 100% sure about
this, though.

- The products' feel was distinctly modern, contemporary,
brightly-colored and "cool".

- The bag themselves were made of two or three different shades of
monochromatic felt (i.e. green pieces and blue pieces); no patterns or
embellishments whatsoever.

- There were at least seven or eight distinct styles of bag; most were
unisex, but there was at least one which was supposed to be a woman's

- The site may have also sold felt armbands (could also have been
described as cuffs, wristlets, bracelets, etc.) which closed in a
similar manner to the bags - several felt "teeth" sliding through
other felt grooves.  The closest thing to these which I've managed to
find is this small blurb and photo from a design site:

- The bags were somewhat expensive (perhaps $100+ for some, or the
local-currency equivalent) which is why I didn't buy one at the time.

- The website was designed with Flash and was very slick and minimalist.

- These products may have been sold by a company which also sold very
modernist furniture (lamps made of plush, AstroTurf chairs, etc.)...
again, not 100% sure on this one.

- From my various Web-wanderings, I've deduced that these are NOT the
bags currently being offered by:  Pia Wallen, do_loop, Felt Studio,
Red Maloo, or Conphorm.

Hopefully I haven't imagined these bags and their manufacturer still exists!

Hi jul_thumbscrew,
It took a bit of digging, but I'm pretty sure I found the elusive site.
As you rightly remember, the "feltfellow" bags are contructed without
glue or stitching, and come in three different colour combinations.
They are the designs of Patricia Yasmine Graf (PYG).
"With an attention to detail and simple precision that is
characteristic of German design, Yasmine Graf has hand cut and
assembled each bag, without stitching and without glue, in an eye
tickling, interlocking tongue and groove. "
The PYG website:
PYG bags and accessories can be ordered from:

If by any chance this is not the site you remember, or you have any
queries about my answer, please request "clarification". Thanks.
