Machteld Hauwert is a fashion Designer, working in ladies fashion for over 20 years. She produces handmade quilted textiles and designs. It was in 2015 when her daughter was born that she began patchworking that she fell in love with the art of quilting.
Her full time job as Fashion Designer gives her loads of inspiration on a daily basis, so the love for textile, colors and shapes comes from a long time ago. Machteld is daily working with fabrics, colors and samples, and therefore has lots of experience with the design process. From idea, materials, to technical instructions, and working in production towards a final product, all these skills are used as Quilt designer.
Machteld is very proud to produce her work in Spain, that has a large tradition in arts that comes from the Moorish heritage that contrasts with her own Dutch culture.
