Growing Textiles, 2014- 2022
Handmade colourful wall pieces that enhance acoustics and brighten your workspace and living areas.
Growing Textiles started in 2014 when textile designers Noortje de Brouwer and
Mieke van den Hout participated in a project at ArtEZ School of Arts in Arnhem.
They developed a technique to process big amounts of waste wool into a new way of furniture upholstery.
A year later the idea emerged to scale up and convert this technique into sound absorbing wall pieces.
Growing Textiles is handmade with European sheep wool and a stretch textile.
It is made to order in various shape and colors.
With circularity in mind, all parts can be separated from each other and are recyclable.
Every work is a one of a kind, numbered and made with care at Arnhem based
Studio Mieke Lucia.
In 2022 the last pieces of the Growing Textiles collection where made. Unfortunately Studio Mieke Lucia isn't taking any new requests.
