Studio Petra Vonk | Textile designer
Disciplines: Textile design for interior and architecture

My desire to combine knitting techniques with exceptional materials motivated me develop patterns with rattan. This created an interesting structure with unprecedented stability that I could not have previously realized with a knit object. The original idea to make an oversized knit from rattan took years to develop through partnerships with architects, landscape architects, designers and various young students and trainees. This opened the way for the further development of the stable 3D knit structure of PLECTERE. The industrial felt is 100% bio based and is braided by hand from beginning to end. PLECTERE braided pieces are sustainably produced in and around Amsterdam.

PLECTERE introduces texture and warmth to spaces, dampens sounds through its excellent acoustic properties and PLECTERE contributes to a better and more pleasant for its users.
