An idea became a project, an experiment became a patent of utility; became a project from the heart. GROTKOP COLLECTION is pioneering wool felt in fashion.
In her masters studies in 2006, Nadine Huthmann, the designer and founder of Grotkop Collection, developed a process with which it would be possible to apply graphical patterns onto industrial produced felt for which she hold an utility patent for some years. Normally only accidental effects, like nops or melanges are standard for the industrial production.
An innovation in wool, for which she got awarded internationally, like from the "Worshipful Company of Woolmen" in London or the "Innovationspreis Mode+Textil 2011" in Berlin.
"Wool felt is such an extraordinary material, which does not play a big role in fashion yet, although it has so many natural performance abilities and a real sustainable footprint. My idea back in 2006 got an evolving project from the heart." Nadine Huthmann
