Petra Vonk – textile design

Posted in fabrics by menno1976 on September 23, 2009

Amsterdam-based textile designer Petra Vonk worked as a knitwear designer for various international labels after graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven. Her textiles are the result of the synthesis of high tech techniques and traditional craft focussing on knitted fabrics. I admire her for reinventing those typical Dutch sheers (which generally look awful imo…).
