    My wife loves, Loves, Loves the silk handkerchief I purchased for her. It came last night, beautifully packaged in a sleeve with your very nice photograph of what others may call threatening skies, but I call your Mother Nature Design Assistant. The date you created my wife’s handkerchief (May 9th 2014) was a beautiful Spring day here on the east coast of the United States of America, but I am very glad your evening was different. Thank you very much, I look forward to other creations of yours.

Product description

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.
Why CrowdyHouse?
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.
See it in real life?
Aliki van der Kruijs is happy to show you her products on appointment.
Depending on the weather the product will be delivered within 6 weeks.
