Together with Schepers Bosman we introduce a capsule collection made of left-over fabrics from our factory in Deventer. Three different sets of ‘experimental patchwork bedding’ consisting of bed spreads, which can also be used as wall rug or wall piece, with accompanying wearable pieces.
With this capsule collection we investigate a form of ‘consumption quarantine’ by seeing value in a simple object like a duvet cover, placing it in a different context and processing it in a different way.
In this collection we, together with designers duo Schepers Bosman, share their knowhow of fabrics and love for craftmanship and design.
Schepers Bosman makes the translation of how to visualize the re-use of leavings, by looking differently at Auping materials and products. Together we investigate a form of ‘consumption quarantine’ by seeing value in a simple object like a duvet cover, placing it in a different context and processing it in a different way.
We aim to create openness and awareness for local production and sustainable Dutch design.
The capsule collection consists of 3 sets experimental ‘patch work bedding’ with accompanying wearable pieces. The bed spreads are composed of left-over fabrics from Auping, such as bed linen, mattress ticking or boxspring upholstery. We only use the soft pieces of your bed, soft materials that are in contact with your body while asleep.
The colors, shapes and textures of the left-over fabrics make the graphical design of the bed spreads:
Colorblock, Landscape and Royal.
Our sustainable factory in Deventer plays the decor for the introduction video.
Watch the video below and see the magics of re-use and craftmanship.
Visible seams and stitches emphasize the construction and tactility of the manufacturing. This handwork and craftmanship is characteristic for both Schepers Bosman and Auping. At the heart of this collaboration are the design values we both share: Dutch production, locally sourced materials, contemporary but timeless sustainable designs.
We want to show that left-over materials can be re-used in a beautiful and meaningful way. Leavings are often tucked away, just as the thrums and the frays. But that is actually the most interesting part of an item. They show that somebody made it, they show the hand of the maker. They breath craftmanship.
"For us, there has only ever been one manner: together. It is by far the best way to create."
Schepers Bosman is a celebration of cooperative individuals.
Sanne Schepers and Anne Bosman graduated in 2011 from the BA ArtEZ Arnhem (both with honours) and continued their studies at L’institut Francais de la Mode Paris and MA Central Saint Martins London. Since 2017, they work together as Schepers Bosman.
The heart of their work is the small-scale production facility called ‘Schepers Bosman Factory‘, where they design, develop and produce for themselves and for others. Schepers Bosman is their personal act of resistance, to the fashion system, to the system of production and retail. Made in The Netherlands.
