Etsy seller Mullish Muse has created some pretty impressive felt figures--felt fashionistas, if you will. Each figure is based on a real-life celebrity, although the likeness is iffy on many of them.

The felt fashionistas are a bit like finger puppets, but way cooler. Well, maybe they're cooler. I guess you'll have to take one to a runway show to find out. Not that I'd recommend that or anything.

Implications - The use of old-school materials such as felt is an interesting way for companies to revisit the charm of the past. This sort of incorporation of unusual materials acts as an example of companies looking outside of the box in order to create cool, newsworthy products.
