About & Contact

I design exciting and unique handwoven textile & art. The philosophy behind my accessoires is that there is a minimal waste of yarns. That’s why I use all kind of (left-over) materials.  With these left-over materials it’s my goal to create unique home accessoires. Art plaids, tea towels, wall art and home accessoires with a wow-factor. The used materials gives beautiful natural irregularities which can be found in every product. The patterns and yarns vary, to give each design its unique identity and character.
