Since 1846, Dutch textile brand Vlisco has created colourful wax prints popular in Central and West Africa. The prints’ complex and traditional production technique means that a lot of fabric ends up on the scrap heap. After extensive material research, designer Simone Post gave new life to these exceptional leftovers by designing a series of interior products.
With folding and laser cutting, she creates patterned cloth panels to divide and accentuate spaces. Other misprints are wound into circular rugs or shaped into seat covers. With endless possible colour combinations, a unique product arises every time, and it’s caught the eye of one of the sleekest designers in the business, Thomas Eyck.
Now collaborating with Thomas to produce more carpets, Simone was recently nominated for the Best Carpet Award at Domotex. An innovative designer in her own right, we’re excited to see what Simone will bring to the industry in the future.
