Jolinde Verbaandert is a young textile designer from the Netherlands. Graduated July '14 from the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design (MAFAD).
Her work is a composite of textures and prints. She likes to combine different techniques, in order to develop structures with varied layers. Aiming for textiles with an eclectic and modern touch, such techniques range from old hand work methods to extensive experiments. In her work, the level of handcraft is important, which manifests itself in needlework, embroideries and hand-drawn prints.
During her studies she did an internship at Daniel Henry Studio in Belgium. This was a fruitful learning period, as she acquired skills in different special screen-printing techniques, worked for the French lace-company Sophie Hallette and co-developed Daniel Henry’s lab14 collection. Moreover, as a form of internship, she has worked twice as finisher for the fashion designer Winde Rienstra during the Amsterdam Fashion Week.
Her ambition is to pursue a career in the wonderful world of Haute Couture, prêt-à-porter and decorations. She wants to create fabrics that will enrich the world with a sense of the extraordinary. The work speaks for itself. But she is sure that the best way to experience them is to actually see and touch them. So if interested, please contact her and come and visit the studio in Eindhoven.
