Individual……..is the meaning of Akaratos.

Akaratos is a small craft company where interior and textile products are made in a limited number. The character of the products gives credit tot the name wayward.

These surprising products are made with care and attention. The materials mainly come from natural fibers. For example different kinds of wool, alpaca, silk, cotton, linen, viscose and bamboo. The fabrics are from kvadrat.

The challenge with interior products lies not only in the design but also in the productions process. Like for example vases. These should be able to stand alone.

Green-E-motion is the name of the indoor exhibition from the FLORIADE 2012, World Horticultural Expo in Venlo. I was working as a flower arranger at this expo.
So I have make my own nature impressions behind the button FLORIADE. These photographs are a collection from years travelling. So I have made several walking tours in different landscapes, from Mediterranean to desert. Now you find impressions of the expo.

From 2012 I started making 'free work'. The 'free work' already begins with the materials. Currently I make my yarns itself, the base is hand spon. I use the handspun yarn in co-pending with existing materials, whether or not re-used. During the spinning of the yarn are the structures in the yarn important. If it should be necessary I dye the yarns.

Have a look and enjoy it.
