Fibonacci Fabrics (shawls)
Jolijn Fiddelaers together with Vij5
“The story of the Fibonacci Fabrics is a special one with Jolijn Fiddelaers, as talented multitasker in the centre. She’s a great designer, connector, and product developer with a passion for fair and organically produced textiles. She regularly travels to India to work directly with local craftspeople to help to preserve their crafts by using their traditional techniques in modern designs for the western market. Her products naturally fit in the Vij5 collection both through their design as their colour. By implementing her beautiful shawls (and cushions) to the Vij5 collection we like to support her as a person and her mission in India.”
– Arjan & Anieke
Fibonacci Fabrics is a sophisticated series of textiles based on the famous Fibonacci sequence; 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, etc. Each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two which result in a mathematical ratio that is very common in nature.
Textile designer Jolijn Fiddelaers designed an elaborate pattern based on this sequence in which areas of colour, patterns and embroidery meet and overlap.
Fibonacci Fabrics offer cushion covers + shawls (in 2 sizes), in various designs and colour ways. All products can function as an individual yet are they part of a bigger whole. “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.
All products are made of the most refined quality ecological cotton, environmental-friendly dyed by hand, completely (!) HAND-woven and HAND-embroidered, designed according natural principles and fair-trade produced in India.
