– About –
Sonja Smalheer desires to design and paint beautiful products that will inspire her clients, offering innovative and personal designs that are caringly crafted to last more than one season.
Sonja regularly finds her inspiration art museums in The Netherlands and abroad.
Her AFRICAN ROOTS and the simplicity of DUTCH DESIGN unmistakably inspire her collections. This blend brings an exciting, eclectic clash seen in her use of colours, hand-drawn details and art inspired prints.
All her products are painted and hand-made locally in her studio in Baarn, situated 30km outside of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
She has a deep love and appreciation for natural materials such as silk, wool and leather. These rich fibres absorb and capture the beautiful dyes resulting in an intense and vibrant collection.
Unique to her collection are her hand-painted silk and wool scarves. She uses her love of painting and drawing to fashion the fabric into collectables that are available in limited editions.
