Remi Veldhoven

Designing, developing and researching textiles with the manufacturing technique as starting point; that's what I love to do. My design process always starts with a technique and the possibilities and limitations of this technique.

I am always looking for new challenges or opportunities to expand my knowledge and experience in textiles.

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to phone or email me.
