Ellen Bloo

Part of the graduation collection ‘HOUT-baar’, 2021.

Bloo: ‘Wood has always fascinated me. We live in wood, we sit on wood, wood gives us warmth, we are actually in relationship with wood every day. What is the relationship between body and wood?For many people, wood is a warm, strong and hard material. It is close to us, yet it is far from our body. By bending wood into a rounder shape, the wood gets a less hard and stiff feeling.’

Material: wood, leather and tweed. Shoe partnership with Sophie Tiné.
