Jessica Rijkers is a Fashion and Textile designer, with a specialization in Branding. She is momentarily following a Master in Textile Design at the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås, Sweden.
Jessica wants to reframe the way we look at textiles by making modifications in the production like using a sticker to imitate screen printing without the water waste and replace the source of conventional ingredients, e.g. cotton, wool, synthetic fibres with alternatives like bioplastic and waste streams. Jessica places value on the process but also empathizes and empowers the characteristics and quality of the material.
Having a clean and modernistic signature in her way of designing, combined with sustainable details, she strengthens the identity of materials, giving the power back to the textiles.
