Noelle Ingeveldt: “That the art of braiding very old is beyond dispute. Today, is braiding seen as a mostly dusty and old-fashioned craft. Hard to find in the Netherlands because the production are been moved abroad. In the time that hip and retro hipsters call the shots, it’s time to get production back and give this old craft again his appreciation its deserve. After the metal, plastic and wood glasses there is a new style, the reed woven look.”
