The above slideshow is about some beutiful people who make and wear very colorful and imaginative felt hats. Check out  Felt Factions web site – a company founded by Elina Saari and Aki Leppänen in 1999. They make unique hats, clothing and wall textiles and almost anything out of  felts. They describe their lifestyle with the pictures above and the following text:

One could easily call this a felt roller coaster or simply a way of life.They work throughout night and day together, dye pots are boiling out on the back yard, sauna turns are being competed against drying felt hats and there is wool and felt stored everywhere in their home.

These hats brightens up our dark winters in Finland.
