Allow me to introduce myself
My name is Janneke and I am founder and creative source of PiecebyPeace.
I graduated in Fashion and Textile design at the Royal Academy of Arts The Hague in 2010. During my studies I had the honor of interning with my fashion icons Alexander McQueen and Viktor & Rolf.
I have been an artist from an early age and have always been passionate about art, fashion, history, culture, nature and well....life itself!
Without knowing it, I went to the Art Academy to study Fashion Design, because I was actually looking my identity, mySelf. During my studies I have learned so much about creativity, story telling and the use of materials, but also about the less desirable side of the world of art and fashion.
This is why in the years after my graduation I started to head in another direction:....my own!
This was when I embarked on my spiritual path and I have sat with and met a lot of amazing people which help guide and inspire me. Taking the time to slow down and go inwards, has really helped me to see, heal and realize what I AM. I would like to inspire and help you to do the same so you can start creating your as life you want it to be.
Yes, you have that power!
PiecebyPeace is the sum of all my passions, talents and experiences in life, translated into wonderful items. I use my hands to create colorful and sustainable things for you to enjoy using upcycled, reclaimed, biological and unique materials. I do this because I feel that most of us are unaware of the environmental impact of the 'throw away' society we live in, as I have seen in the fashion industry; we are simply so used to 'cheap stuff' that we've lost value for things. I create everything myself in my little NL studio using as little resources as possible.
