New Material Award 2016 at DDW

2016 October 

Simone Post was one of the nominees for the New Material Awards, among others like Christien Meindertsma and Maarten Baas.

Helmond company Vlisco produces fabrics for the Central and West African markets. On her own initiative, Simone Post conducted material research on Vlisco’s waste fabrics and misprints. This study resulted in the Vlisco Recycled Carpet. The great variety of waste fabrics produces unique rugs, each with an enormous wealth of colour.

Simone Post has succeeded in setting up a unique and fruitful collaboration with a large company like Vlisco. The rugs are marketed by LABEL/BREED.
