Veerle Tytgat is textile designer who lives and works in Ghent, Belgium. Her main guideline is knitting, although she impliments other craft related techniques in her work. Because of her interest for matter and sustainability she’s trying to produce ‘less waste’ designs. Taking care of the way things are made, she uses as much ecological materials as possible in an ethical way of producing. Sometimes she experiments with non-conventional and raw materials in a surprisingly way...
Influenced by her surroundings, she creates designs that embrace colour and texture in a playful way. The results are spontaneous. . Each piece has a unique color combination and structure. Some designs balance between functionality and style. In her studio every piece is or machine knitted or assembled by hand.
Pillows with a good conscience, that’s what the cheerful LOOP Pillows of Veerle Tytgat are all about. The pillows are made of 100% ecologically recycled cotton and produced from a “less waste” point of view.
Veerle uses a special kind of knitting technique which makes the pattern and colour combination of every pillow unique. The proportion of colours is every time a bit different and unpredictable
