Sibylle Eschenlohr


Sibylle Eschenlohr lives in Reutlingen, Germany, and is an agricultural engineer, felt maker, sheep lover and maker of wearable art, vegetarian rugs, and fluffy wool products.

Sibylle stands for a very special kind of creativity. She makes felt fur. The 50-year-old sells these fake fur products made from virgin wool mainly at markets in the region. In her workshop in a disused industrial building, there are piles of pads for stove benches and seat cushions, vests hanging next to jackets. Black-grey, wool-white and brown-patched: They all look shaggy. And at the same time, deceptively real. But what is real?
