The sweater collection of Loes Veenstra

Posted: September 30th 2013

Since 1955, Loes Veenstra has knitted over 500 sweaters that she stored in cardboard boxes in her home at 2e Carnissestraat in Rotterdam. The sweaters have never been worn.
Museum Rotterdam discovered the collection, and with Wandschappen invited designer Christien Meindertsma to develop a book, Het Verzameld breiwerk van Loes Veenstra uit de 2e Carnissestraat.
Droog is pleased to present the book along with a selection of sweaters from September 27th until October 31st. The sweaters and the book will be available for purchase.

SWEATER AUCTION
On October 31st, ROOMSERVICE cafe and tearoom at Hôtel Droog will auction a number of unique sweaters over a lively dinner event. A chance to bid on your favourite sweater from by Loes and to welcome the winter in glorious colours.
