Because felt is made from wool, Studio Claudy Jongstra is committed to working with high-quality wool. This is one of the reasons that we have our own flock of Europe’s oldest breed, the ‘Drenthe Heath sheep’.
Our interest in quality and ambition extends to not only having our own flock of Drenthe heath sheep but starting our own dye studio using exclusively vegetable dyes.
Shortly after our botanical garden had been laid out, many insects and butterflies came to inhabit it and we realised we could stimulate bio-diversity.
Logically, we took the next step in the independent production chain, namely planting our own fields of dye plants.
