Textile Designer & Artist


Felicia Hansen

Professional teddy bear killer

Felicia Hansen is a textile designer and artist with a passion for sustainable approaches within the field of textile design. She has a soft spot for colour, texture, and atypical materials and for the last two years, she has been defining the core of her textile practice. In most of her current work, she dismantles discarded stuffed animals to create sustainable art and atypical interior designs. 

Felicia has a five-year design education from The Swedish School of Textiles, where she first specialised in weaving in her bachelor's degree, before moving to a more textile general practice circulating repurposing post-consumer waste from the toy industry. She is currently based in Borås, Sweden, but hopes to relocate soon. 

Felicia offers a variety of textile services, please contact her if you want to do a collaboration.

2022       Lagerhaus Student price

Motivering: ”Vårt pris går till en student vars verk uttrycker glädje och lekfullhet och samtidigt bidrar till en hållbarare värld. Den ifrågasätter det vi lämnar efter oss, men undersöker hur man med god design kan använda befintligt material för att skapa nya produkter. Vi vill ge vårt pris och en jättestor teddybjörnskram till Felicia Hansen för exjobbet ”TEDDY VESSELS”


Justification: “Our prize goes to a student whose work expresses joy and playfulness and at the same time contributes to a more sustainable world. It questions what we leave behind, but examines how, with good design, existing materials can be used to create new products. We want to give our prize and a huge teddy bear hug to Felicia Hansen for the ex-job “TEDDY VESSELS”
