Thank you so much for stopping by. Soetwaer is a creative studio from the Netherlands run by designer and textile lover Nicola Kloosterman. (That's me!). I design print and pattern for textiles, papergoods and more.
I live between the Dutch dunes, forest and fields. My current collection for soetwaer is based on these daily surroundings which have inspired me to create a collection of prints with an emphasis on minimalistic shape and color.
I am influenced by mid-century design, children's picture books and the natural world. At present I continue to focus on color and shape whilst developing new prints and patterns for soetwaer. I am strongly drawn to the tactile and the handmade and my proces focuses on bringing a fresh and modern design to life whilst retaining the spirit of the handmade.
I appreciate items that have been made on a small scale by businesses that are sustainable and have a story to tell. My work is my story, I hope you enjoy looking around.
