JULIA SCHMITZ

#TEXTILE DESIGNER

Julia graduated at the Maastricht Academie of Fine Arts & Design in 2015. Inspired by miners work, she came up with a concept that reflects her design philosophy of getting to the bottom of
things that are worth of social consideration. It is also a theme Julia is emotionally and personally connected to.

She want to bring awareness to people’s minds and hopes that it will cause change in our time of growth and globalization. At the same time, she feels that industrial mining structures and landscapes contain a certain beauty, if seen from a right perspective. She therefor tried to evoke this ambivalence and the depressing feeling by the use of many layers of different fabric techniques that can be pulled of.
