UMs developed from two creative challenges: The first, to make use of the unique properties of pressed wool felt, and the second, to transform a flat surface into a volume using only the simplest of operations. As it happens, these challenges turned out to be mutually beneficial and resulted in objects that are as practical as they are pleasing. When unzipped, UMs lay completely flat for dry cleaning and easy storage — and when zipped, they become inspired forms with inherent functionality.
UMs come in one quintessential color: gray. That’s because they’re sewn from two layers of industrial wool felt made from factory excess. As a natural material that might otherwise go to waste, most would consider it eco-friendly. All UMs are cut and sewn in the San Francisco Bay Area.
“Funky bag! Really love this bag, its so quirky yet stylish!! Get comments on it heaps! Simply love it!”
“Grey Flannel not like Granny Grey. Not good for storing things when laid out flat but it does then double as a hot dish warmer. When zipped up, it looks really funky, especially good with winter wardrobes.”
