These versatile crafts give Astrid the creative freedom to explore these concepts, which are often stimulated by nature, books and other art. These designs have a green soul and are enriched with personal and emotional content.
Some of Astrid’s most popular work includes felt wall hangings and felt sculptures. Today, her distinctive felt wall art and felt art commissions are delivered to customers and clients across the world.
bombyxMORI felt artwork is handmade just outside Galway and inspired by the Wild West of Ireland. Environmentally friendly art that can enrich your home, office space or reception area, and can be delivered across Ireland & internationally.
