Textile design has always been central to the work of Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer, from her schooldays through her studies at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute to her Masters in applied art at the Sandberg Instituut. Since opening her studio in 2013 she has been driven by her interest in craft techniques. Using yarns, colours, patterns and fabrics, she seeks out the boundaries of textile production with the aim of translating old methods into the present. Mae Engelgeer’s works combine subtle colour palettes, patterns and linear elements. Complex compositions are brought to perfection and give rise to new harmonies.
