WHAT IS HIDDEN BEHIND THESE BAGS?
A COMMUNITY WORK WITH SOUTH TYROLEAN FARMERS.
For centuries craftsmanship played a significant role in South Tyrol’s farms. It is important to continue the old craft knowledge in our modern time, to integrate it into our society and to rediscover it.
In March 2016, I launched a project that dealt with traditional craft techniques of South Tyrolean farmers. In connection with two South Tyrolean farmers and the Südtiroler Bauernbund a valuable exchange arose. Meanwhile, a wonderful cooperation between the farmers and me has developed and the first small series of bags has been created. Through the timeless models, the personal handwriting of the respective farmers are placed in the center. Each of these bags is something very special. The bag felts are made by the farmer’s wife in her “Filzstübele” with much endurance. The complementary wooden elements are made individually for each pocket felt. The farmer completes the bags into a harmonious whole.
HANDWORK AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL
Maria Radewahn works together with craftsmen who carry out their work with a high quality. The certifications include the quality assurance of the „Filz Netzwerk e.V.“ and the quality seal “Roter Hahn” from the Südtiroler Bauernbund.
QUALITY ASSURANCE THROUGH THE FILZ NETZWERK E.V.
The tested quality of the „Filz Netzwerk e.V.“ stands for hand felts with a high quality in material processing and its targeted use. It also ensures transparency of production.
QUALITY SEAL FROM THE SÜDTIROLER BAUERNBUND
The quality seal of the South Tyrolean Farmers Association “Roter Hahn” marks products that were produced directly on the farms. Accordingly, the material of a product comes to 100% from South Tyrol. The products have an excellent implementation in handicraft production.
REVIEW OF THE DESIGN DAYS 2017
From 13.10. until 15.10.2017 the annual design days took place in Brandenburg / Potsdam. Also this year I had the opportunity to tell my stories to many people. Zudem gab es einige neugierige Blicke an meinem Werktisch. The presentation of a product to be felt gave the visitors an insight into the craft wet felting. It was eventful days for me.
