Fibonacci Fabrics is a range of sophisticated textile products based on the famous Fibonacci sequence 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, etc. Each subsequent number is the sum of the two preceding ones, resulting in a mathematical relationship that recurs throughout nature.
Textile designer Jolijn Fiddelaers designed an extensive collection based on this series in which colour fields, patterns and embroidery meet and overlap.
The series consists of cushions and shawls (in 2 sizes), in various designs and colour schemes. All products are beautiful on their own, but at the same time they are visibly part of a greater whole. "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts". Especially the cushions are therefore easy to combine with each other.

Transparency of the production chain comes naturally to us.
With us, that doesn't just mean giving information about where something has been produced. Our chain starts much earlier: with the designer of the product!

The story of Fibonacci Fabrics is a special story with Jolijn Fiddelaers, a talented multitasker, at its centre. She is a designer, connector and product developer with a passion for fair and organically produced textiles. She regularly travels to India to work one-on-one with local artisans. Her goal is to help them preserve their craft by applying traditional techniques in modern designs, suitable for the western market.
We were personally very charmed by the beautiful hand embroidery of the Indian craftsmen and asked Jolijn to design a series of cushions based on a specific technique. Her products seamlessly fit in with the Vij5 collection through both her designs and use of colour.
I believe that designers, as professional designers, have a unique opportunity to contribute to a more sustainable and conscious life on this planet. I want to encourage people to dream their dreams and make them come true! From inspiration to creation.Jolijn Fiddelaers
CURATE & TRANSLATE
Fibonacci Fabrics has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2014. The products show that sustainable design is created where tradition and innovation melt together and bring each other to a higher level. For this collection Jolijn made a beautiful combination of Indian craftsmanship and Dutch design.
Her mission is to "nurture tradition and embrace innovation". She takes her time to understand the essence of crafts and create new forms from there. By doing so, she brings a new perspective within the existing frameworks and contributes to the skills of Indian artisans.
By including the beautiful shawls and pillows in the Vij5 collection, we would like to support her as a person and her mission in India.
