Belgian designer Hermine Van Dijck (°1989) attended the Ghent School of Art where she specialized in textile design, graduating in 2012. Later she was accepted to do an internship at a weaving company based in Paris, where she developed her interest in weaving even more.
In 2013 Hermine opened her own studio in Antwerp (Belgium), working on handwoven designs and interesting collaborations. Hermine's work is characterized by a typical use of color. Her love for handwoven imperfections and geometrical patterns are unmistakably hers.
She translate poetic feelings into strong visual designs. By using unique graphic combinations and natural fibers. She is inspired by weaving on her Scandinavian weaving looms, the atmosphere of the high north and traditional textiles. She cleverly combines the artisanal character of old weaving techniques, with modern aesthetics into textiles for the home and heart.
In her studio she creates small collections of handwoven objects. Every piece is 100% unique, and handmade by her hands.
