Hellen van Berkel has worked as a textile designer in The Netherlands since graduating from the well-known Design Academy Eindhoven in 1989.
Her work in various environments has contributed to her vast, wide-ranging experience. As a designer of accessories for famous fashion brands she became ever more fascinated by the effects that the combination of patterns with texture can incite.
Hellen’s love for textiles inspired her to enhance the diversity of materials, colours, and design in her own work, and in 2013 she founded her personal label, Heartmade Prints by Hellen van Berkel. This collection, consisting mainly of scarves, is recognizable for its own authentic, beautifully layered features.
