Dutch Textile Designer Mae Englegeer

An Atmosphere of Design

(Sam­ple text until we nar­row down a direction)

From Metrop­o­lis:

Engelgeer’s design process began with con­jur­ing up what she describes as an atmosphere…a sort of feel­ing” root­ed in inspi­ra­tion gleaned from her trav­els, muse­ums, and fash­ion, and the store­fronts near her Ams­ter­dam stu­dio. She sketched shapes and used pho­tos, mate­r­i­al sam­ples, and col­or swatch­es to help visu­al­ize con­cepts and give them tex­ture. I don’t do any hand weav­ing,” she says of this ear­ly stage, point­ing out the lack of weav­ing equip­ment in her stu­dio. I try to keep free and open-mind­ed in what could work, and I real­ly like to play.”

What is impor­tant at first is to be super free in using the weird­est yarns, then to lat­er start to make it more suit­able for upholstery.”
