Today you will find a limited edition of my napkins in the Monocle online store. The napkins are the outcome of my collaboration with the world renowned media brand Monocle. The combination of design, size and graphic is made exclusively for Monocle. We met in September in Paris and decided to start a collaboration of a linen textile limited for Monocle. Together we have created

TEXTILE No. 11
that is a special size and unique selection of my designs in the Textile No. collection. It has been very inspiring to work with the Monocle design team that from the very first communication precisely knew in what direction we should work. First we decided the size then we went on with the special selection among my existing designs and when these decisions were made we created the graphic design exclusively made for Monocle. The result can be seen in Monocle March issue.
Monocle is a global affairs and lifestyle media brand and in my opinion one of today’s most influential medias. In addition to being a magazine Monocle also has stores around the world and an online store with curated design products. Monocle describes that they “sell products that cater to our readers’ tastes and are produced by brands we believe in.” I feel proud that my textiles have been noticed by the people behind Monocle and I am grateful that they believe in my design identity.
