In Juni 2015 Suzanne Oude Hengel graduated from the department Product Design of ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem. For her graduation collection she combined two worlds: shoes and textiles. Therefore she developed shoes and socks existing of different knitting techniques. She developed an alternative for the use of leather in the shoe industry. Her collection is durable due to the minimum production waste, the pattern part can be knitted as one piece.
Her collection consists of a craft knitted series shoes; 3 pairs industrially manufactured slippers and 3 pairs industrially manufactured socks. Suzanne Oude hengel collaborated with Knitwear Lab to develop her industrial knitted socks.
