    This collection is about meditation. It illustrates how painting meditation can be transferred to the fashion industry, and how the meditation concept of flow, from Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, can be blended into design. The collection introduces a new method of meditation felting and leads people to see that felting can not only create beautiful textures, but also help people with emotion stabilization, stress reduction, and alleviating depression.
