What We Do
Committed to sustainable fashion, Fenna&Fei creates biodegradable and non-petroleum based jewelry and accessories. All of our pieces are made from ethically sourced cellulose acetate from both Italy and Japan. Everything is designed and finished by me, the founder, in Boise, Idaho.
Cellulose acetate is made by combining acetic acid and cotton pulp. Acetate is first made into tiny white pellets which are melted down to form a paste. This paste is dyed using many different kinds of powders including shell for a pearl effect. Once the final color is decided, we set the sheets for laser cutting. Once cut, our pieces undergo a 3 day polishing regimen where they are rolled in wooden barrels and then hand polished to perfection.
The name Fenna&Fei is inspired by my two daughters, who I hope, grow up to inspire others and be a shining light in this world.
I'm so very happy to share my love of acetate with you. It has a likeness to what we see in the natural world. It's Inspiring, colorful and perfectly imperfect. Thank you for visiting and for making the Earth a better place. Love Fenna&Fei
