Creative ways to reuse our recycled felt
Did you know that all Trophyology awards are wrapped in handmade felt sleeves that are inspired by traditional Japanese Furoshiki wraps? Our wraps are made from a light gray colored felt-like material that is fabricated in the USA from recycled plastic bottles.
Sewn locally in Austin, the felt sleeves add not only protection to the finely finished wooden awards, they also add a certain personal touch to the unboxing experience for Trophyology honorees.
We’ve listed some imaginative ways to extend the life of this already sustainable material and made-with-love aspect of our packaging.

Decorate and insulate your small potted plants with felt! You can also take this idea a step further by adding acrylic paint for chic and minimal decor.
You can create your own stylish felt tablet holder by reusing our felt. Cushion your device and secure with a fastener of your choice.
Our felt can act as a great desk accessory. Place pens, markers, and other every-day writing utensils in this catch-all and take them on the go in your computer bag.
Store and transport your favorite shoes by wrapping them in felt. On your shoe rack or in your suitcase, this material will separate and protect your footwear.
Our felt also happens to be a great sunglasses carrying sleeve for the casual sunnies you might take to the pool or beach. You may also throw in your swimming goggles.
Wondering if you can throw the felt sleeves into the washing machine? Yes, absolutely! Wash with cold or warm water and it will look new many times over.
We'd love to see how you are using the wraps creatively - snap a photo and tag us @trophyology!
