Never Felt Before! The Extraordinary Felt Designs of Claudy Jongstra at Moss

Partly primitive, partly animal, part magic, the felt textiles of Claudy Jongstra are unique in their rough sophistication. Some seem to come straight from the back of the beast, others are worked with a finesse that makes them a statement in raw elegance. For Jongstra uses only raw materials - wild silk, wild linen, wild camel, wild cashmere and especially wild wool - which she then felts and treats with original techniques that result in some of the most creative fabrics ever seen. Felt is her instinctive fabric, one she never tires of reinventing for clients as varied as Christian Lacroix, Donna Karan, John Galliano, SO by Alexander van Slobbe, Hella Jongerius, Steven Holl and many others. This will be Jongstra's first solo exhibition in the United States.
