After graduating in fashion and textile from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Sanne started working in illustration and pattern design.
Sanne’s designs are painterly, playful and whimsical in style. Where at times she creates endearing, delicate botanical and floral structures, the next time she will surprise you with patterns that evolve from experimental starting points, like collages or pictures she takes of textures.
“Seeing my designs come from the factory is always very fulfilling. All the work that is put into a fabric by many people at Vlisco makes it a moment of celebration when you finally see the result. Then, a design is ‘released’ into the world. I find it a huge compliment when I see my designs being worn in garments.”
