Weaving is a slow process.
By carefully selecting and combining materials I create textiles that can be used in fashion as well as in interior design.
More so than industrial weaving, handweaving allows me to focus on the texture and structure of the cloth.
By designing new patterns and using the natural qualities of the materials, I weave one of a kind textiles.
Because each piece is made entirely by hand no two items will ever be the same.
I also hand dye yarns myself to get a specific colour or look.
Valerie Tjantele is a textile designer who specialises in handweaving. She produces limited textile collections,
while working as a freelance designer as well. You can always contact her to work out a customised product.
She currently lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium. All pieces are handwoven and handmade in her atelier.
