Fabrics and materials used by Gopher
Industrial technical felt
Industrial technical felt comes from the recycling so it is environmentally friendly. Technical felt is a mixture of cotton, linien and synthetic fabrics. Special conditions during the production process make surface of the industrial technical felt perfectly flat. Approximate thickness 3mm but it can vary a little in different parts of the fabric.
Industrial technical felt is stiff enough to let boxes and other goods keep their shape. It is more rough than other colours of the felt available in my shop.
This material requires shaving form time to time. You should do it using clothes shaving machine.
Felt used by Gopher is a synthetic fabric. Approximate thickness is 4mm.
Felt is impregnated on one side so inner side of the box or case will be a little more rough and slightly brighter than outer side. Thanks to impregnation felt is more resistant to stretching and it is more stiff. Also, it makes boxes, cases and other felt goods keep their shape even when they are empty.
Felt is very durable. Your item can be used for years without any damage. This material requires only shaving form time to time. You should do it using clothes shaving machine.
