Rosebud Felt Bowl by Domestic Aesthetic
This single piece of industrial felt transforms into any number of shapes with the help of magnetic connections but we prefer it as a lovely rosebud. Great for holding anything from keys to mail or even sewing supplies with the felt acting as a pincushion. Industrial felt is made from approximately 85% factory excess wool and 15% mixed fibers. 100% industrial wool felt with magnetic connectors.
6-1/2 x 9 inches diameter when assembled. Handmade in Brooklyn.
