Loes Van Oosten is a wonderful designer from the western seaside of the Netherlands. Her skillfully created handmade stamps, block prints and silkscreens all share the simple “Loes” elegance. The magical simplicity of her designs always begin with paper and pencil. She strives to translate the joy she receives from working with her hands into all of her designs. We enjoy all of her artwork and are delighted to introduce her first Cotton+Steel collection, By the Seaside.
Loes’ inspiration comes from details she observes in nature or from simple everyday objects that catches her attention. Her creativity is sparked by beautifully engineered structures in nature and various art styles from Impressionism, Art Nouveau, and Wiener Werkstatte.
