My unique scarves are rich in colour and texture, woven by hand in a combination of responsibly sourced lambswool, cotton, linen and silk. Some scarves use small amounts of mill-end synthetic yarns. A selection of my scarves is available to buy at VeronicaWEAVES.
Inspiration is drawn from nature and land- and seascapes in my local area, especially the Haagse Bos, the woods nearby in The Hague, as well as from travelling – the stunning Hebridean archipelago off the west coast of Scotland, the wild and sometimes brutal landscape of Iceland, and the alluring nature of Japan. I seek to capture a memory, a moment in time, in texture and colour, of these experiences. I first develop the work on paper, then as a weave pattern, selecting colours and textures of yarn, and finally weave the piece by hand in my weaving studio.
As well as working on my own designs, I love to work on commissions. Please contact me for further information. Depending on workflow and the design process, a piece can be ready in 2-4 weeks.
