Our 2015 December stamps for Dutch national postal company PostNL were launched at the end of November.
Creating small stories involving animals, plants and flowers within each of the 10 designs, the December stamps show that Christmas and New Year are festive holidays that we celebrate together.
The seasonal December stamps are available now from all post offices across the Netherlands.

As part of the Echo Exhibition, taking place in Plymouth from the 12th of October until the 7th of November, we are exhibiting two pieces of our textiles collection; the Wednesday Curtain and Shadow, designed in collaboration with Kvadrat.
The exhibition focuses on the infinite possibilities available to artists through repeating a singular form, action or process. It features 18 makers from the Crafts Council Collection and beyond, exploring the potential to embrace both machine and handmade processes.

Our new collection of jewellery is a modern-day representation of three of Vincent van Gogh’s seminal works: Almond Blossom, Sunflowers and The Potato Eaters.
Commissioned by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam the collection launched in early September 2015 to coincide with the opening of the museum’s new entrance hall that includes a new shop.
Taking inspiration from the brilliant colours, characteristic brushwork and objects that appear in the paintings, the collection uses both modern and traditional production techniques to bring to life Van Gogh’s work.
Part of the Design range, we also designed and produced the packaging for all the jewellery working with manufacturers in Great Britain.
Pictured is our Almond Blossom paper necklace:
Inspired by the Almond Blossom painting, where I imagine the delicate blossoms to sway in the spring breeze, this paper cutting unfolds into a garland necklace of almond blossoms. It is made of a very strong paper and can be worn several times or used as a decoration.
2015 marks 125 years since Vincent van Gogh’s death (1853-1890).
More details on the collection to come.
