Tisja believes that her strong connection to the complete process gives life to her signature designs and stories. This is a journey she hopes to take on for many, many years; to ensure this, she stays close to herself, and every stage and creation reflects her personality and considerate approach to creating and sharing.
The design process, the development of patterns, and sampling are done in our atelier in Amsterdam to develop a distinction in the design, quality, and fit. With this, we avoid extra transport or unnecessary development cost and time. Even the smallest waste inspires us to create… The remaining little pieces of materials are a treasure box for Tisja, creating an opportunity to be creative as a designer and to look at it in a different way. Some of her pieces feature a patchwork element, combining the materials in different ways to ensure all of the materials are used. This is why we also combine the materials in different styles so even the smallest pieces are not a waste, but a piece that inspired her to create.
