Natasja Fakkeldij: Anything is a Valid Material for a Beautiful BagFrancesca Palange
Natasja Fakkeldij was born in the Netherlands but she currently lives, works and cycles in beautiful Ireland. She grew up in a small village called Nisse where she had a neighbour who was a tailor, and who – without knowing – inspired Natasja and impulsed her love for textiles.
But Natasja’s passion for textile is not just related to craftsmanship but to recycling. From a jacket’s pocket, a piece of a skirt, a print of a t-shirt, an old woollen jumper or a vintage tea towel she can create an amazing bag or scarf.
In the Spring Issue 2017 of No Serial Number magazine, Natasja shows you how to make a simple and beautiful messenger bag. Only 6 steps to create a lovely present for yourself, a good friend or family. Don’t hesitate it, go get your copy of the magazine and start digging in your wardrobe for materials ready to be recycled.
The latest issue of the print magazine packed with interviews and features on eco and heritage artists and artisans is available now.
