Design Studio in the TextielLab
In the Design Studio of TextielMuseum you can be a designer for a day. Here you can create your very own personalized socks and scarves. For the first edition we’ve worked together with Dutch product designer Bertjan Pot. Choose a knitting pattern, combine different colors of yarn and top it off with your very own text. Your design rolls out of the state of-the-art knitting machine right before your eyes. You can take your socks home right away. Scarves get delivered to your home.
What’s the Design Studio and how does it work?
In the Design Studio of TextielMuseum you can take on the role of designer. We always collaborate with a new designer. For the very first edition that designer is Bertjan Pot. Together with TextielMuseum he developed a digital application that enables you to design your own socks or scarf within the central theme “color”. With the Design Studio, TextielMuseum offers you a chance to work in the TextielLab. That’s our fully equipped development center where renowned artists and designers create innovative textiles. This allows you to peek inside the design and manufacturing process of fabric you wear every day. The Design Studio focuses on the future of fashion: fashion on demand, production without residual waste and the use of sustainable yarns. In short: no overproduction and very sustainable.
