Submaterial is thrilled to announce a new partnership with FilzFelt, our long-time collaborator and resource for premium commercial quality wool felts and architectural products. We’re handing over the reins of all sales and distribution of Submaterial’s complete line of acoustic, modular wallcoverings to focus on production and product development.

What does this mean for our customers? FilzFelt’s sales representatives located worldwide will now be available to discuss projects and provide samples in person. Any inquires or order placement may be directed to FilzFelt at 800-482-7777. To continue to stay up-to-date on Submaterial wallcoverings, please sign-up for the FilzFelt mailing list and visit FilzFelt.com/Submaterial for complete product information. For all your Submaterial wall panel, wall hanging and accessory needs, you can still connect with us directly at 505-891-8356 and through the Submaterial website.

Custom Wall Covering

We value the customers we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the last eight years and are working closely with FilzFelt to ensure a smooth transition. While we may not be the ones you pick up the phone to reach, be assured that all Submaterial products will continue to be meticulously crafted in our Albuquerque, New Mexico studio.

FilzFelt and Submaterial’s new partnership will be formally introduced to the public at NeoCon, North America’s most important design exposition and conference for commercial interiors taking place from June 13-15, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. FilzFelt’s collections of acoustic and room dividing products including Submaterial Collection wallcoverings will be integrated into the Knoll showroom on the 11th floor of the Merchandise Mart. David Hamlin, our founder and creative director, will be in the showroom to celebrate this partnership.


New Products

Finally! Thick, sound-softening wool felt and cork composite come together to create a seamless, plank-style wall covering that adds linear emphasis to any residential or commercial project. As a vertical installation, Index Linear runs continuously from the floor to ceiling heights up to 9 feet. In a horizontal format, you can choose full lengths up to 9 feet or have our studio provide the material pre-cut to your specified lengths and ready to install. Planks are backed in 3mm composite cork and are available in 2”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” widths. A typical order includes an even distribution of widths in both 3mm and 5mm felt faces. Apply product using heavy-duty wall covering adhesive.
