Opulent Fibers was born out of a woman's passion to share superior fiber and COLOR with artists around the globe. In 2010, Kristy Kun (an Oregon based felt-maker), launched her dream of working directly with producers and dye houses to supply the finest, most unique products with her fellow artists.
Opulent Fibers ensures the highest environmental standards have been met in their product production by supplying a large selection of fibers and wool felts that meet the International Standard for nontoxic and baby safe wool, Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
We educate and inspire customers by providing an online outlet for sharing works and knowledge (see our facebook page!), offering hands-on opportunities to local schools, and preparing free and commissioned demonstrations of wool craft at trade shows and community events.
Our workshop program is one of the finest in the country. We are focused on bringing acclaimed artists to the Pacific Norhtwest for to share advanced techniques in feltmaking.
Kristy Kun is a professional fiber artist and works hands-on with all of the products she sells. She draws on years of experience working with fiber, leather and wood to create unique pieces of wearable art and home accessories. Deeply rooted in Kristy’s art and business is her core philosophy of respect and protection of the environment, supporting the creative growth of our children, and the sharing of inspirations and techniques in the arts.
Kristy's studio is located behind her home in Portland, OR. If you are interested in taking a class please sign up for our newsletter and use the contact page.
