Made by Rain - Designer Duvet Covers / Pillows by Aliki van der Kruijs.
With these silky soft bed sheets you can sleep underneath the elements while staying comfortably tucked in. In order to capture the experience of rainfall on textile, Dutch designer and artist Aliki van der Kruijs developed a technique named pluviography. Using filmed textiles sensitive to water she visually records all sorts of rainfall, from light drizzles to torrential showers. These bed sheets reflect the rain exactly as it fell from the sky in Amsterdam on Thursday April 5th 2012.
The weather that afternoon was unstable, with blue skies alternating heavy rain showers. Whenever van der Kruijs would see another rainstorm approaching, shed hurry up on the roof and catch the drops on large sheets of fabric. From the imprints of these raindrops she created this design. Just like a rain shower, every set of bed sheets is one of a kind.
The ZigZagZurich Artist bedding collection brings to home textiles a new dimension of art and design. We work with artists and designers from around the world across a broad spectrum of the art world, transferring their work or ideas onto textiles and developing products that are unique to the market. Our aim is to add a new level of bed linens never seen before - luxury bedding with original art that supports our artists directly with every product sold.
We use high-quality, super soft cotton for printing the collection on, not synthetic fibers, with the same quality standard of Italian production we stand behind on all our ranges. All bedding is hand made in Italy in our Atelier.
