The Soft World

The Soft World is the label of Dutch felt designer Beatrice Waanders (WDKA), who turns left-over wool of old sheepbreeds from nearby sheepflocks and hobby-farmers in handmade felted interior textiles.

At OBJECT 2017 she presents ‘Hindelooper Sheep’, a collaboration with Roosje Hindeloopen, the last company in the historic town of Hindeloopen still making the famous Hindeloopen hand-oilpainted furniture completely the old way. For this collection Roosje Hindeloopen mixes her paint in the wool colors of typical North-Netherlands sheepbreeds like Fries Milksheep, which makes an interesting and very Dutch combination with the feltwork of this wool.
