Fibre Fusion was established in 2004 by Chrissy Lauritz. We are based in Melbourne, Australia and sell worldwide.
Our objective is to offer textile artists, particularly felt makers, a magnificent colour selection of the highest quality wool and silk fibres available. We continue to diversify and respond to our customers requests for unique, high quality fibres and felting supplies.
Chrissy's had a life long love of textiles. It started as a two year old, sitting on the back fence in that divine pink fairy dress Margaret her Mum had sewn. As she grew up Margaret filled Chrissy's head with stories of the 1950's when many Melbourne girls went to dance at halls every night of the week.
Being quite poor, Margaret would sew up a stunning ball gown on her trusty old treadle sewing machine. No patterns, no tutoring. All self taught at the ripe old age of sixteen. That ball gown would undergo a metamorphosis every few days. A new sash, beads attached, a bodice replaced or perhaps ruffles of organza added to the neckline. Anything to make that dress look new again for the next night.
Over the years she watched her Mum crochet dresses, knit all the family's jumpers and macrame wall hangings for the house. Little wonder Chrissy ended up in textiles. Felt making is her passion. Felting and fibre supplies is her business. Hopefully she can pass on the legacy of a love of textiles to a whole new generation.
Fibre Fusion Australia is a family business. Fibre Fusion Global Pty Ltd acts as trustee for the Fibre Fusion Family Trust trading as Fibre Fusion Australia.
