Who we are…
Art of Blends
A Dutch brand of Marie-Louise Dominicus in co-operation with designer Ellen Haeser, creating handmade artworks for beautiful silk scarfs.
Each of them with a rich and versatile career in the fashion industry. Yet passionate as ever and full of initiatives based on new values by which the meaning and function of textile and fashion regain its beauty and relevance again. Their aim is to be directly connected by popping up in different cities, resorts and places to meet, inspire, create and advice. In collaboration with other “soul mate” companies, designers and Art of Blends lovers.
How we work
elements and combining them in an intuitive way we unleash hidden stories and create new meaning to the things around us. We design unique handmade artworks each telling a different story. An on-going process of mix and match categories based on our intuition. A ‘collage’ technique with 3-dimensional elements, we paint, draw, embellish and add some embroidery parts on top of the artwork.
Meaning before matter
How it is made
Art of Blends
Our products are produced on high quality digital printing machines, in small factories in Europe and India. Sustainable is for us a choice of working with high quality Pongé silk, a conscious choice because of it’s sustainable character. No pesticides and insecticides applied on silk- cultivation. Our scarves they lasts a lifetime and so you can rightly call them the Vintage of the Future. We also produce only what we can sell, no stock volumes and sales periods. Our scarfs are ‘all limited edition’. ‘The soul of our business is grounded in authenticity and proven values, empelled by the technology of our times.”
