Remodelista London Market Spotlight: Kirsten Hecktermann Textiles

Issue 45 · London Calling · November 10, 2014

After years of creating textiles and costumes for film sets and magazines (including many features in The World of Interiors), London designer/stylist Kirsten Hecktermann launched her own lines of spoons and textiles for the home. The spoons are designed by Kirsten and handcrafted by artisans in her father's shop on the Kenyan coast, where she grew up. Her hand-dyed textiles are available in an array of fabrics, from linen to velvet. Though distinctly different mediums, both her spoons and textiles bear her signature look of sumptuous texture mixed with elegance and restraint. Kirsten will be showing her latest work at the Remodelista London Market this Saturday, November 15.
