ALIKI VAN DER KRUIJS
Aliki van der Kruijs is Dutch designer/artist who works within the field of textile research and design. Her practice is based on distilling nature’s poetry into objects that enrich the human habitat. Aliki's work method involves carefully planned manufacturing however integrating a certain uncontrolled ‘natural’ element in which the coincidence is programmed, leading to a collection of tactile and poetic projects.
Ever since her MA studies, she has been focusing on the use of textile as a medium to communicate, in this way highlighting the relationship between culture and nature.
