Jolinde Verbaandert is a young Dutch designer (24), graduated July 2014 at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design (MAFAD) as a Textile Designer. Jolinde’s work is all about textures. She likes to combine different techniques and to develop a textile structure out of different layers. The results are textiles with always a different touch and feeling.
