Alli Brumwell is the artist behind FeltCandy, a textile art studio located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Alli uses felting technique to create a wide range of art pieces in the form of functional objects as well as one-of-a-kind decorative pieces.

The items designed and created by FeltCandy all project a cheery, bright personality, something that the artist notes is quite intentional. Whether you’re looking at the ornamental birds, made from brightly-colored balls of felted fabric, or the so-called “man bowls” – useful bowls made in sober, neutral colors – you’re bound to feel a sense of soft contentment creeping in. I really enjoy the attention to detail in these works, like in the “happy bowls,” each of which includes a sculpted centerpiece within it.

Alli also creates greeting cards that are decorated with felted elements – often in the form of cartoonish owls and blocked-out lettering. The studio also offers “pass it on” cards, which have multiple, removable paper sheets inside, to encourage recipients to tear out the original message and re-use the card, a great way to embrace re-gifting as a thoughtful way to save paper.
