Drenthe Heath by Claudy Jongstra for Maharam
In the northern Netherlands, Claudy Jongstra uses wool from the rare Drenthe Heath breed and dyes made from native plants to create Drenthe Heath for Maharam.
A combination of Drenthe Heath wool, mulberry silk, Merino wool, and Wensleydale wool, Drenthe Heath comes in two sizes and four colors-Salt, Madder, Woad, and Carbon.
The handmade felt revels in its texture and evokes its source, which is exactly what Claudy Jongstra wants to do: "For me, it is important that people understand that material has a life, a history. That it is connected to other living beings-people, plants, animals, the earth itself."
