Textile Designer working in River Studios
Simone Deckers is a textile designer who explores her love of colour and pattern through both hand and digitally printed textiles. Greatly inspired by the pure joy and freedom of riding her bike around the streets of Melbourne, she observes the beauty of her surroundings to inform her playful and illustrative designs. Her distinct aesthetic is expressed through a narrative of line, colour, texture and pattern.
“I love the uniqueness of hand printed designs and the beauty in imperfection which the touch of the human hand heralds.”
Simone carefully selects high quality and hardwearing natural materials for her collections, understanding the important role designers can play in reducing the environmental impacts of the products they create. Her love of nature drives the desire to promote a symbiotic relationship between design and the environment.
