Press Release Winter in Holland January 2018

Winter in Holland – Finest Fabrics – Interior and fashion accessories

WE ARE SOCIALLY, MADE IN AMSTERDAM

 

We are proud to announce that this year our Amsterdam social-productions will run fully. All orders made from this point on, are Socially Made in Amsterdam:

The makers come from cultures where education for women, unfortunately, still is uncommon. Ever since they moved to the Netherlands years ago, they were unable to participate on the job market. They were bound to home instead. Winter in Holland helps these women become independent and gives them a career within the field of textiles. The women are educated to become professional knitters, are paid for their work and can receive help to set up their own business. All products made by these craftswomen, are marked with the label: Socially Made in Amsterdam.

 How amazing is it, that we can help each-other out

 

Winter in Holland is a slow-fashion textile brand conceived and established in Amsterdam by Anouk van der Laan. For us creating fabrics is all about form and function. Focussing on both knitting and weaving allows us to choose the optimal combination between the aesthetics and the purpose of a product. Intrigued by the marriage between man and machine we continuously experiment and search for new and existing techniques. We are eager to find new solutions and come up with unexpected patterns and detailing.

 

The products in our current collection, made under the label ‘Socially Made in Amsterdam’, are LIJN and Collection 2. Both collections are developed to solely be made by hand: the techniques used are impossible to develop in factories. The attention the knitter gives to each row of the knit, is the soul of the product and the key to the design:

LIJN: The merino woollen scarfs and blankets comes in a plain color with one graphic line in a contrasting color. The craftswomen decides where to place the line, leaving her personal mark on every product:

 

 

Collection 2: The yarn of each product is dyed by hand in a special technique which makes the gradient print possible. The craftswomen puts a certain tension on the yarn, deciding the placement of the dye on every knitted row.

LIJN collection











DF7FC1602AE3482F96762FD82A6F90FF-1



Thick rich woolen yarns shape the soft touch of the textile, communicating an effortless sophistication and subtle luxury. It shows a perfect balance between utility and delight. Elegant and deliberately picked colors are only for the ones appreciating a refined taste; These products are for the individuals with style equal to their own authenticity.




 High standard is hiding in plain sight








The line on each product, which quick-wittedly also is the name of the collection, is precisely the reason why this collection is hand-made: The knitter decides where to place the line, leaving her personal mark on every product. Made with great care, these knits are hand manufactured by our ladies.

Visit us in Paris this January ’17

Super fresh from the design atelier, we introduce Winder in Holland’s newest textiles on Maison&Objet. The collection, named ‘Lijn’, exists out of 3 color-ways that will be shaped in cushions, blankets and scarfs.

For this A/W 2017/18 collection, we present hand-knitted textiles with a subtle structure and delicately picked finishings. The rich feeling of the soft wool asks to be touched, held and worn. The new collection shows a testament of clean and indulging design and reflects an excellent understanding of the craft behind knitting.

The textiles, unlike other collections of the brand, have an uninterrupted even texture and color. Except for one contrasting line (‘Lijn’ in Dutch) that highlights merely a shimmer of the underlaying texture of the cloth.  The serene atmosphere that surrounds the collection, easily compliments many interiors and will accompany the room with a welcoming and wholehearted feeling.

A marriage of the inherited knowledge of craftsmanship and the quality behind a product is what drives the company. From design until production: Winter in Holland has worked on creating a solid and modest production for its valuable hand-made pieces. In the outskirts of the city Amsterdam, is an atelier situated where women from the neighborhood use their inherited skills to start a career in the fashion industry.

In the past year, 3 ladies have learned the skills of knitting by, Winter in Holland’s founder, Anouk’s guidance. The ladies have developed themselves as blossoming craftswomen and help Anouk out in the production of the hand-knitted pieces.
