Growing Textiles is a collaboration between Noortje de Brouwer and Mieke van den Hout.

They worked on a project together in 2014, in which they did a lot of material experiments with wool and fabric.

The wool they worked with during this project is from a sheep farm close by.

The amount of wool of their sheep is too little for the industry so the sheep farmers would have to pay to get rid of the wool after they shaved their sheep. This is a total waste of a beautiful material. Experiments with the wool led to a technique to make acoustic wall objects that absorb sound and give more ambiance to the space.

Every wallpiece is handmade and unique, more information on the website or email:
