About Mirjam Hagoort

Mirjam Hagoort a visual artist and Marjolein Peters an urban designer and both had frequent conversations with the city as a subject. Looking from two different points of view, their fascination for the city touches common ground in the beauty of the urban fabric, the graphic structures of the map and the landmarks that the city shows.
It became clear to them that they were not the only ones with this passion and they decided to create a special product to share these city-love stories with friends. This resulted in the Barentsz City Scarves and pins.
