Hi! My name is Katherina. I am a South-African born, second generation Dutch, recent immigrant to The Netherlands. It’s a mouthful and an interesting hereditary journey that I’d like to explore through my research.
While I make sense of all this I will be documenting it on this research blog, so welcome! This is my attempt at using my hybrid heritage to influence my research and find ways to inform contemporary culturally and socially sustainable ideas.
How can I share, the inherent circularity of indigenous technologies and ways of making; in order to co-create ‘modern’ sustainable textile design and production?
