Studio Mirte is founded by Mirte van Kooten, a designer with a background in graphic design from Utrecht, the Netherlands. Studio Mirte is a design studio that makes tufted textile art.
"After making digital designs as a graphic designer, I wanted to create tactile pieces you can actually touch. I use a hands-on technique called tufting, which helps me create texturized and soft pieces. I create lively and bright pieces of art which you can put on your walls and floors. My designs are characterized by chunky shapes and bold hues, a visual language that was developed while working as a graphic designer for several years. I am always looking for the perfect balance between shapes and colors. Every piece I make is only made once, which keeps every piece unique."
