SUZANNE OUDE HENGEL – ArtEZ 2015 – ‘Loop Colored Feet’

In June 2015 Suzanne Oude Hengel graduated from the department of Product Design at the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem. For her graduation collection she combined two worlds: shoes and textiles. She developed shoes and socks made through a variety of knitting techniques. By using knit she explores the alternative of using leather

in the shoe industry. Her collection is sustainable: minimizing production waste and knitting the pattern in one piece.

Suzanne Oude Hengel collaborated with Knitwear lab to develop 3 pairs of industrial knitted socks.
