We design products that aim to draw attention to the beautiful and innovative ways in which nature manifests itself. People feel better spending time in nature, but find themselves spending most of their days indoors. Let’s bring nature back in our lives.
I am Carolijn Slottje. Together with Esmee, Kim and a number of talented students we form Studio Carolijn Slottje. As a studio we create works on commission, but we also design our own product range.
When designing we love to combine handicraft with nature. In doing so we look at what nature has to offer, like an interesting range of materials, but also natural shapes, forms and patterns.
We think our indoor lives will bennefit from natural elements like plants and the human touch of handcraft. All the hand work is done by us or by our fair-trade partner. Handcraft provides more people with an income than, let’s say one man with a machine. The company Dutch Design in Development helpt us find the right fair-trade production partner.
We sell our designes either directely via our design studio webshop or via our selected retail partners in Europe.
