Made on request; a wall hanging special for you

wandkleed Babette

I create custom wall hangings based on previous designs or in the sizes that fit your space. Each piece is unique due to the natural variations in wool and the felting process. I can also craft a completely new design based on your ideas.

Background material

I work with different background materials, or a combination of materials. Linen, jute or wool felt can be the base of the wall hanging.

The linen comes from Belgium and has a subtle frayed edge on the sides and bottom. Options in three colors: (see also photos the text)

Linen 1: light flax color that falls smoothly.
Linen 2: darker flax color, tightly heavier and stiffer than the previously mentioned linen.
Linen 3: warm dark ocher color falls supple

The jute is available in one colour; a beige. The structure is coarser than the linen and is slightly stiffer.

The wool felt is available in undyed, natural colours; off white, brown and black. I create it by felting loose tufts of carded wool into large felt pieces, therefore the size is unlimited. Wool felt offers great acoustic value.

A combination of different background materials as a surface for the wall hanging is also possible.

Linen and jute have a fabric width of 150 cm and an infinite length. The size of the wool felt is unlimited.

I often make the round moon shape as a standing tapestry, but it can also be used as a horizontal wall hanging.

Hang loose or weigh down

At the top of each wall hanging, I create a tunnel for a wooden stick to pass through. Often, I leave the bottom loose, creating a pleasing organic effect with the linen and jute. Unlike linen and jute, wool felt wall hangings don’t flutter. To achieve a tighter hang with linen or jute, I can include a tunnel at the bottom for a wooden stick. This adds weight and pulls the fabric tighter.

Stretch on frame

All work can be stretched on a wooden frame. This makes the work a bit tighter.

Wooden frame

An wooden frame round the wallhanging when stretched is possible. This way it gets more the idea of a painting.

Shape of raw wool

The shape of raw wool can be anything, see my portfolio page here for everything I’ve already made. Or maybe you have an idea yourself. The shape of raw wool is always a composition of different sheep breeds of wool. Unpainted and treated as little as possible; just some water and green soap.
