My name is Leonie Holfelder and I am currently in the 8th semester of the diploma program textile design at the State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart.

In the course of my studies I have learned various textile-forming techniques: Weaving on button and computer-controlled looms, knitting on two-bed knitting machines as well as screen printing and digital printing. I draw my inspiration from the most diverse areas that surround me. In my creation process I work both systematically and experimentally. By using all my senses I study structures, details and compositions: I experiment with different colours, materials and techniques. Thereby I have a deep look into fine details of the designs.
