A lovely old farmhouse in the village of Spannum, an hour outside from Amsterdam, is the home and studio of textile designer Claudy Jongstra. In this peaceful haven Claudy works with local weavers, who create fabric from the wool produced by her flock of two hundred head of sheep. Claudy then colours the hand woven fabric using dyes created from the plants grown in her garden. In her home Claudy has continued the idea of authenticity, retaining the farmhouse's original structure, livened up with contemporary touches. Love. More here on Marie Claire Maison.
