References & projects

As a Textile Designer I’m always looking for new projects in order to explore the different possibilities that weaving, pattern design and product design contain. I offer design services and textile repair services for businesses and private individuals looking for these types of designs and products, and I gladly take on new projects throughout the year.

Client satisfaction is at the heart of my practise: whatever I may be designing, I always start with the client’s expectations in order to deliver a design that matches their wishes and needs. When working with me, deadlines are respected and communication is easy.

Feedback from customers

Thank you for your professionalism and the meticulous work, and for the detailed care instructions!

Mirjami, Kilim rug repairs & remake

This woollen vintage kilim rug, brought in by a private customer, needed some care and repairs. The repairs included remaking a corner that had unraveled (lower left in the “after” images) and remaking the fringe. For the fringe we agreed that the look could be different from the original fringe as long as the new design would match the rug’s colour scheme. With these repairs the rug really came alive again!
