Wies Preijde graduated in 2012 at the Textile Design Department, of the Royal Academy of Arts (in the Hague). After 5 years of study she concluded that the process of designing new textile materials always involved the creation of new forms.
She derives her inspiration from rhythmic patterns, textures, shapes encountered in everyday life or from architecture. She then links these to the techniques used to make the textiles. Everyday objects and the way they occupy space, such as floors and walls, are constructed using a different material thus creating the experience of new effects and functionalities.
