Artist and industrial designer Deborah Shavlik creates her line of home furnishings and accessories in Brooklyn, NY. Incorporating upcycled fabrics and natural wool fibers, the pieces are made by hand using a combination of needle and wet felting processes. Since needle felting is similar to tattooing, it inspired this classic flash tattoo heart and banner design.
After working nearly 12 years as a professional industrial designer, which included travel to overseas factories, starting a high quality hand-crafted line made in the USA felt important to Deborah. Having worked with numerous mediums over the years, included woodworking, glass blowing, and painting, she continues to explore textiles and play with new mediums.
