For those who like at least some of their storage containers to be out of the ordinary — and soft — I've got an assortment of felt storage containers to show you.
Let's start with Amy Herbst, who mostly sells her patterns — but she also sells some wool felt nesting bowls she's made herself. I was also pleased to note she's from Santa Cruz, California, which is just about an hour's drive away from me. Hurray for local!
You can also get felted wool bowls — single bowls, or nesting bowls — from Hold of Vancouver, Canada.
And another source of felt bowls is Gräf & Lantz. The bowls are available in four different color combinations. You can also find them at Switch, which also has a couple additional felt storage products from the same company. Update on August 6, 2015: Gräf & Lantz no longer seems to make these bowls.
These felt bread baskets were designed by Norm; of course, they can be used for more than bread. They're sold in sets of three. You can also buy them from GSelect and Spark Living. Update on August 6, 2015: Spark Living seems to have disappeared.
Manusmade has some felt baskets in luscious colors, as well as neutrals.
And finally there's Filzkraft, which makes a number of felt storage products, including this bin. [via Apartment Therapy and Cool Mom Picks]
