I’m happy to show you a first peek into my new textile works. (I made the textiles samples a while ago, but I didn’t dare to show them yet. Because I’m so unsure about everything. But maybe it’s time to ask what you think of it.) “Plush” is my newest fascination, and I try to get it into my work as much as possible. The hanging threads are so charming, to me, and they acting always like they want to.

I always been fascinated by hand-made-textiles, and I think it’s so sad that there isn’t so much space for handcraft inside the textile-industry. That’s something I’m worried about. It’s impossible to go ‘back to basic’ totally, and do everything by hand. (Except when you just want to do it for fun, or to relax).

My work is a statement. I try to cross the borders between handycraft, and the industry. Between me and a machine. It’s about searching a way to use a machine, but to add something of myself to it. Without my hands the fabric will never exist. Like the machine is my second hand. It’s difficult to describe, but I want to use the fastness of a machine to transform it in a contemporary way of handcraft. How can I fuse those two opposites ? That’s what my research is about.

It’s for all of us, who want to go back to a pure and honest piece of fabric, unique and different. For you, and for me.

More about my research is comming soon.

    Beautiful textiles as always Hermine 🙂
    You have a real talent and good eye for colour. I share some of your worries, but I believe there is a small corner of the industry which hand made and hand crafted textiles fit and are appreciated. You have to make what comes from your heart, you can be a self employed textile designer and freelance for good companies!
    Good luck with your final studies

    Wat mooi Hermine! De kleuren, textuur, patroontjes,…
    Ik hou ook veel liever van handwerk dan van machineproductie maar jammer genoeg gaat het niet anders. Ben al benieuwd naar je verdere resultaten!
