CHECKS & STRIPES    lousmijn van den akker   fabric development   product development   checks&stripes

The essence of designing yarn dyed fabrics is determined by the basic rules of weaving: warp and weft. The end result shows in optima forma in simple fabrics like checks and stripes. The beauty of the pattern is completely determined by the colors and the way they work together.
Any other fabric is a complicated version, a mixture, a variety of these basic items. There is very little as challenging as designing just this: pretty and commercial yarn dyes. In amazing colors and combinations, in commercial repeats, in harmony and balance with the yarns, the final quality, the finishing techniques and the target group of the weaving mill. With real colors, in real material. We design all our yarn dyes by making real handmade windings. Our signature color tool.
