Some of you know I have been working in a textile firm for quite a while now.
Starting from this january,
I quit my job to become ILSE ACKE completely,
as an independant textile designer.
You all know my weaving work the best,
but a big part of me is also a pattern designer.
Since the summer I have been drawing a collection of patterns,
because in february you can visit me in Paris at Premiere Vision,
were I will be selling my graphic and textile works.
But ofcourse, anyone in need of freelance textile advice/design
can just call me, mail me, visit me.

To say it with the words of Elvis:
It's now or never...

It's getting cold.
My sleeping little helper.
Weaving sample, yarn samples,
a slow proces to a new project.
The first of january is coming closer,
an important date...

It has been ready for a week,
but it's new owner wanted complete suprise,
so I had to keep the pictures to myself.
It's 'mostly' blue and yellow,
but I dared to use pink, green, orange and white.
Hope you like it!

I'm off for a new adventure, it has to do with scarves,
but in a different way I am designing them now.
Also still busy in my drawing room every day,
making motifs for print, weave, ... 
My deadline for that adventure is february,
but that will become clear very soon.

Have a nice weekend!!
