Dirk-Jan Kortschot – The Netherlands


Category: Modern


My DNA is really my DNA. Since I was a young boy I fold in paper.

Always looking how to make a folding form from 2D into 3D and translate into the right fabric.

There are two fusion things in my hat:
– fusion in my fabric: silk with paper into one new fabric
– fusion in using an old technique with my own folding technique.

The result is a wonderful hat which can be worn easily and shows my ideas.
