After working with felt for several years, the brand was established in 2006 named Ditta Felt Nomad&Fashion.
Then changed to DittaFelt.

                              

                                        the brand


The brand focuses on natural materials.
Colours and prints are realized through traditional dye methods including eco print.
Finest felted fabrics made by the traditional handmade wet felting technique, inspired by the felt works, and tailoring of the nomad people, and also the sculpturist forms of the present day’s fashion. Using renewable wool, manufacturing felt is an old way are meeting with modern techniques.
“I want to make conversation between ancient and new technologies.
Instead of pursuing short term fashion trends I produce something independent with long lasting values. I want to emphasize that natural solutions can be fit into urban design. My aim was to create poethical but modern collections through hand crafted fabrics. It feels more like a marriage of both the artistic line and the commercial way of clothing.”

Creating one of a kind pieces allows to stay connected with the fabric which means a basic inpact in the designing process.
Forms and silhouettes are simple, easy to wear, the textiles dominate.
“Both the label products and artistic pieces are sensitive for socio economic fairness, it means also small collections,  focusing what I want the brand to be, environmentally conscious handmade collections.”

Slow clothes guarantee timeless design and suistainability.
