Drenthe Heath

Oct. 5, 2018

Drenthe Heath, by Dutch textile artist Claudy Jongstra, is a modern manifestation of material culture passed down through the ages. Available in two sizes—the smaller “pelt” and larger “hide”—Drenthe Heath combines alternately lank and coiled tufts of Drenthe Heath, Merino, and Wensleydale wool as well as natural mulberry silk and woven silk chiffon. With its irregular edges and variable surface, it adds warmth and tactility to any environment.
