Billie van Katwijk is fascinated by nature; alive and dead, in all its purity and imperfections. As a result of her love for animals and nature, she tries to highlight the beauty she sees in them. Often she does this by (re)using natural forms, colours and materials.
Van Katwijk believes in showing contradictions and taboos, but avoids judging them.

That’s why her approach is unconventional, discussing existing rules, habits and dogmas and leaves the beaten track, to create something new.

“I want to add value by making unconventional choices, getting people to think and inspire. My concepts are completed by the user, with his or her own thoughts.”

Currently we are working on upscaling the Ventri Leather production for a bag collection. We are looking for collaborations.
