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.
