Modern Fiber Lab creates sustainable home decor out of animal and plant fibers. Predominantly working with wool fibers and felt techniques, this lab sources most of their materials from shepherds primarily residing in the United States. According to the website, "Felt is utilitarian, decorative, and completely renewable," thus a great material to work with.

Founded by Atlanta-based fiber artist and textile designer Sonya Yong James, Modern Fiber Lab produces handmade products that are undeniably stylish and contemporary despite the traditional techniques used to create them. From woven, colorblocked vases to shaggy throws, Modern Fiber Lab offers a range of items to make the home more eco-friendly, cosy and fashionable.
