Highly individual scarves, cushions, accessories and woven art made using traditional techniques and thoughtful sourcing of materials: all woven by hand in my studio in The Hague
Textiles have a permanence, carrying peoples’ memories
As a textile designer and artist, I have been making unique woven items rich in texture and colour for more than 15 years now. In seeking to recreate a memory of an atmosphere, a feeling or a sense of place through my weaves, I paint a picture with yarns using traditional techniques and thoughtfully sourced materials. I combine an ancient craft with a modern approach to make individual contemporary heirloom textiles that will become a treasured belonging, a piece to keep and wear or use time and time again, year after year.
It’s knowing the story behind a textile, the inspiration and the process of its making, and the things that happen to it subsequently, that turn it into a treasured possession. A scarf that is worn on that special trip to the windswept beach; a baby blanket that will be passed down through the generations; a cushion that brings comfort on a rainy day. A thing of beauty and functionality. It’s a privilege to think that my textile might be a part of your story.
I want textiles to be valued, to encourage an appreciation of the craftsmanship that goes into making them, and to stop them being throw away items, used once and then discarded.
