Encircle and Interlace by Karin An Rijlaarsdam

Aiming to create three-dimensional textiles, Karin An Rijlaarsdam's design process is informed and inspired by local textures and artisanship techniques – taking particular interest in how they spark social interactions and shape identity.

Encircle is a sculptural upholstery textile with a tactile, meticulous expression. 

It combines particularly well with Interlace, a light, transparent and soft curtain textile designed by Karin An Rijlaarsdam, with a distinctive, irregular organic expression.

The colour-scale for Encircle and Interlace reflects a range of elements that shape life in Côte d’Ivoire, from flamboyant coloured textiles to luscious greenery and infinite waterscapes.
