Let it rain! Aliki van der Kruijs develops “Made by Rain’-prints on fabric, using a proprietary technique. In this particular method of printing, rain creates patterns in the material with the aid of colour pigments. Each fabric is different because of the changeable weather conditions in the creative process. An Amsterdam based tailor fabricates unique ties, handkerchiefs and scarves from the 100% silk Made by Rain textiles – no two alike: an equally chic, artistic and unique addition to your outfit.
100% Silk Shawl: 30×140 cm
100% Silk Handkerchief: 45×45 cm
100% Silk Tie: 5 cm width
How it’s made
Aliki van der Kruijs produces the “Made by Rain’-fabric herself on the roof of her Amsterdam studio. Local rain is responsible for the drop pattern, making this a typical Dutch product. Each ordered item will be delivered with an authentic certificate showing the exact time, date and location of production, as well as the number of millimetres of rain fallen on the fabric.
These items are produced by a laborious crafty printing method, which is depended upon the weather. The exclusive nature of the items makes this a limited edition product. In order to maintain this exclusivity, Van der Kruijs produces only small numbers. Crowdfunding ensures that the production remains in her own hands, and keeps the products affordable for those interested.
