Carola Van Dyke
Carola van Dyke is a Dutch – British designer and follows the principles of Dutch design, with a healthy portion of quirkiness, experimentalism and humour.
With a background in illustration, fashion design and painting, she wanted to combine paintings and textiles to create pictures, but this had to satisfy her passion for textures, mismatches and the contrasts of colours and layers. It needed to be quirky, intricate, and with a sense of humour. So the process of drawing with scissors started and these hand-cut pieces are mixed like a painter uses its palette.
Now Carola creates flamboyant cushions with an eclectic mix of vintage and modern fabrics. Exuberant & vibrant in style, using handpicked textiles, they are all individually handmade in Britain. Her designs are eclectic and exuberant in style, using original mixed textiles for her cushions.
