Textile designer Nanna van Blaaderen´s work is just stunning. Specialized in hand- and in machineknitting, she blends craft, materials and innovation to develop textiles that integrate comfort, elegance, quality and sustainability. Animal life and nature are essential sources of inspiration and are recurring themes in her designs. The sculptural knits of Nanna van Blaaderen with raw structures and soft textures, are applied in fashion, in interior and in autonomous fields.
Nanna van Blaaderen has been fascinated by textiles and design from an early age on. During her studies in fashion design she explored different disciplines but it was in knitting that she found a way to fully express her affinity for materials, fabrics and design.
‘Since I started exploring knittingtechniques a world has opened up for me. The potential of this discipline, to create textures, structures and shapes in various materials, seems infinite’
In her continuous research and experiment in materials and craft Nanna van Blaaderen developed several concepts and collections in knitdesign, varying from expressive abstract knitted collections, to machineknitted interior products and fabrics for fashion design.
