Mark your calendars: Claudy Jongstra’s textiles are on view at the Modernism show at the 7th Regiment Armory on Park Avenue through Monday 5pm (booth C3).
The fabrics are dyed with only natural vegetable ingredients and made from exceptionally high-quality materials, such as the finest Drenthe Heath wool from her own sheep, as well as merino wool, silk, alpaca, and so on. Each design has its own variations in tone and texture, giving it its characteristic visual richness. Her textiles have been used by architects such as Rem Koolhaas and the MVRDV as well as fashion designers such as Alexander van Slobbe. She’s won so many awards for her pieces of “art” that I can barely see straight.
