Part of the accessory collection VAAL. Inspired by the traditional Dutch clog, 2014.

Fascinated by the folds and pleats, we not only applied them to be aesthetical but also functional. Our passion for crafts is shown in the soles which are made of cane and based on traditional basket work. Traditional Dutch attire is comprised of various types of folds and pleats. Fabrics are treated with starch and heat to give form and structure. Whether starched or ironed, each pleat sculpts the fabric in a meaningful way, and change the manner in which garments drape over the body. These traditional folding and pleating techniques inform our collection and are an important point of departure for our work.

Material: cane, brass, polyester, tube and ripstop fabric.
