“Mittring and Friends”:
On my 6th I started crochet….still love to make woollen hats! Since my 9th I have been making cloths for barbie and dolls….never stopped sewing cloths!
For my studies pattern drawing and sewing, I was placed for my apprentice in a boutique for New wave, punk and second hand clothing. Here I learned to restore and recycle textiles.
After studying fashion design on Rietveld academie I travelled and slowly I realised that beside living in a gipsy wagon I wanted to experience living in a ger(yurt). My sewing capacities extended to yurt cover sewing. Nowadays I am doing sewing works in many disciplines.
My label “Mittring and Friends”exists thanks to all my friends who supply me with textiles, help me with transport and inspire me.The challenge is blowing new life in “worthless” textiles: UPCYCLING!
