The artist’s eye

My name is Jeannine van Erk. I trained as a carpenter before studying interior design at Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. As an artisan I love well-crafted objects and materials, fabrics, and colors that appeal to the eye as well as our sense of touch – a multi-sensory experience. I also love carpets and rugs and the effect they have on a space. To me, iCarpet is an expression of pure human beauty that transcends all barriers of gender, age, height, weight, race, ethnicity, or social status. The iris doesn’t tell you any of these things about a person. Maybe that is why they say that the eye is the mirror of our soul.
