About

As a kid, I made cotton friendship bracelets (and sold them to my classmates). As a teenager, I designed personal webpages and blogs (and taught myself some HTML). As an adolescent, I got accepted for Photography at Art School (but declined, because I wanted Illustration). As an Art History student, I tried getting instafamous as a fashion blogger (and failed miserably). As an Ancient History student, I started knitting to reduce stress (and never stopped).

I've always been interested in creative stuff like webdesign, photography, fashion, interior, you name it. With learning how to knit and crochet, I finally found a way to bring all of that together into one project: a handmade knitwear shop. I decided to call it Chain Twenty, after the first chain stitches I usually work to make a test swatch, the beginning of each new handmade design.

The aesthetics of Chain Twenty developed naturally out of my love for minimalistic design, a preference for unique and handmade goods, and a ‘quality over quantity’ kind of lifestyle. With these aesthetics, I try to let Chain Twenty bridge the gap between traditionally handmade knitwear and modern fashion and interior design. A small colour palette, simple shapes and basic textures form the foundation of Chain Twenty’s timeless staple pieces.

    After graduating university in Utrecht (The Netherlands), I moved to the beautiful island of Gran Canaria (Spain) to do absolutely nothing with my studies and continue my love for knitting and iced coffee from underneath a palm tree.
