Josh Jakus In SF Area
In the not so distant past, we had an invitation to visit Josh Jakus's studio in Berkeley, CA. I have always been a secret (well not so secret now) admirer of his incredible wool products that look as though they have been birthed in a space capsule and this capsule is made of wool. With Josh's comfortable space and personality, we were able to get down to business discussing local production, wool and your basic green design. The material he uses is 80% recycled wool felt. He die cuts the wool and sews it right here in the bay area. We also got a preview of an adorable new product line, so look for it in your closest green retailer. Thanks for the hospitality Josh!
