I got the idea of founding myTASSEL when looking for a trim that would suit my couch. I found beautiful pieces all over the world but only in conservative, facile colours. What I wanted though was something new, fresh, and sharp – modern as well as hip.
Finally, I discovered a manufacture with the skill of creating trimmings for my world of colours. Then and there, it became clear that I would adapt this art handicraft to the 21st century with plenty of contemporary trendy compositions. This is how I integrate textile adornments into up-to-date fashion and innovative interiors.
Since I was 12 years old, I have always devoured interior design magazines and books. So it seemed only logical to do it for a living.
For five years I had lived in Amsterdam! As one of the hippest cities in the world, it offered me deep insights into the ultra-cool design scene. My sons’ passports show Amsterdam as their place of birth, which they find awesome, of course. My twin daughters were born in the art and fashion capital of Düsseldorf, where we currently live and where I founded myTassel.
