Family Matters

FAT FELT Family of Products for Gifts this Mother's Day or Father's Day

It may be possible to gild pure gold, but who can make his mother more beautiful?
- Mahatma Ghandi
When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.
- William Shakespeare
We like to design and make things that we like to give, especially to our family members. We are family people. We are moms and daughters and we love our moms and our sons. And of course we love our dads, too.
Our stuff is tough, seemingly most suitable for men. Not true. Many of our most loyal customers are women who (like us) appreciate well made, functional and beautiful goods. One of our most recent customers wrote us this recently:
"I bought a Fat Felt Zipper Tote for my sister for Christmas, she loves it, and so does my mother. So much so, she wants one now."
This Mother's Day and Father's Day, here's to our family and yours.

On the topics of graduates on the move, the man Walt Disney, and Perfectionism, see our recent favorites on these below:

Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination

We are captivated by this biography which captures both the brilliance and darkness of one of America's most famous visionaries and perfectionists. Your Graduate might be, too.


How to Get Things Right

the checklist manifesto

We at FAT FELT are perfectionists. We are constantly on the lookout for thoughts and processes to help us do what we do better. We found this book to be both inspiring and useful. Your Graduate might turn up her nose at a book about the power of checklists, but it could be one key to her success.
