Jongh Geleerd Oud Gedaan 2

After a successful co-production for the Jongh Geleerd, Oud Gedaan collection, Jonghlabel asked the Amsterdam women from different cultural backgrounds to help again. In Turkish and Moroccan culture handicraft techniques are still commonly practiced (e.g. it is still tradition to knit a lot of pieces for their wedding ). The bright colors and sophisticated patters from the women creations are used as inspiration for a new collection. Patterns from Arabic art and architecture are reflected in the knitted shawls and cushions. The combination resulted in a new universal technique, a very personal product. The collection is developed in collaboration with Nikkie Wester.
