Current Exhibition hold at the Cooper-Hewitt museum in New York exploring the varied new uses of felt—an ancient material, believed to be one of the earliest techniques for making textiles.

The exhibition will begin with historic examples of felts, showcase innovations in handmade felts, and feature contemporary uses of industrial felt in a range of fields, including product design, fashion, architecture, and home furnishings.
