There are two fabrics in the Hindelooper costume that really hit the eyes: the chintz, a cotton fabric with a painted flower motif, and the East Asian printed cotton fabric, with a woven chequered motif. During the 17th and 18th centuries these beautiful fabrics, just like coffee, were shipped from India to Amsterdam by VOC (The Dutch-East Asian trading company). Here the people from Hindeloopen (a small society from the province Friesland in the northern part of the Netherlands) bought a lot of these fabrics for the money they earned on their own profitable trade.

Each colour in the Hindeloopen fabrics tells its own story. The red chintz, on a white background, was used for the “bruidswentke” a bridal gown. The dark blue and light blue colours were used for sad events, while the multi-coloured fabrics were for general use. All these flowered fabrics are combined with chequered fabrics in the Hindelooper costume.

The Hindelopia collection is produced for use in quilts, bags, pillows and modern art, but keeping the inspiration from the Hindeloopen designs. We hope that you, like us, will be impressed by the fantastic possibilities of this collection.
