Meet the Felt team

Felt is based in Christchurch, New Zealand, and run by a dedicated team of four: Lucy, Marcel, Jo, and Blake. For Felt’s birthday, the team stepped out from behind the website to answer some questions about what they do, why they do it, and what it’s like to work on Felt.

An epic way to shop

We’re celebrating 15 years of Felt this month! Since 2007, we’ve been providing thousands of New Zealand makers with a platform to connect with customers and thrive. To mark the occasion, we’re taking a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come and enjoy a little trip down memory lane.

15 facts about Felt

For Felt’s 15th birthday, we’re taking a little peek behind the scenes and finding out the important stuff. What is the story behind Felt’s name? Where, exactly, does Felt reside? What do two chickens and an Irish Wolfhound have to do with anything? Here’s 15 facts you might not know about Felt.

We’re sorry for being absent!

Monday mornings are hard enough without your favourite website disappearing! Unfortunately our week got off to a rough start with Felt’s host server crashing early on Monday morning, leaving us offline for several hours and causing a bit of a go-slow on Felt when we did get it back. I know it’s really been frustrating for many of you, and I’m very sorry for any excess stress it has caused.

A new arrival

As well as our own birthday here at Felt, we’re celebrating the arrival of the first Felt team junior. You might have seen mention in our April newsletter that Rose was expecting. I’m delighted to announce that baby Hamish was born on Tuesday weighing 3.98kg, and both mum and bub are doing well. And yes, that was Felt’s birthday – what an auspicious date to make one’s entrance! Congratulations Rose and Josh, and welcome to the world little Hamish!
