Craft with a cause...

I found these interesing 100% wool felt vases the other day by Crafted Systems.
I love the texture & pattern. Crafted Systems believe that in a world of modern consumerism & convenience, we have lost the skills of craftsmanship and handwork. "We crave meaning in handcrafted work which cannot
be produced by a machine..." 
They partner with women from YWCA shelters, teaching them new skills and giving them a creative outlet. A lovely story behind a unique and beautiful design. Read more about the Portland, Oregon-based company here.
