Veerle Tytgat is textile designer who lives and works in Ghent, Belgium. Her main guideline is knitting, although she impliments other craft related techniques in her work.
Because of her interest for matter and sustainability she’s trying to produce ‘less waste’ designs. Taking care of the way things are made, she uses as much ecological materials as possible in an ethical way of producing. Sometimes she experiments with non-conventional and raw materials in a surprisingly way.
Besides her experiments, she creates designs that embrace colour and texture in a playfull way. The results are spontaneous. Geometric lineair patterns often took shape by coincident. Each piece has a unique color combination and structure. Some designs balance between functionality and style. In her studio every piece is or machine knitted or assembled by hand.
