//////// INTRODUCING KVP - TEXTILE DESIGN ////////

Hello ! My name is Kim Vande Pitte, I’m 31 and I’m a Textile Designer based in Brussels.

In 2012 I launched my brand KVP - Textile Design. I create graphic patterns and develop them in collections of fabrics, home linen, decorative objects and furnitures.

My textile creations are silkscreened in my workshop or digitally printed in subcontracting, but I also use the sewing machine to make quilted, embroidered or pleated fabrics.

**Bonjour, Je suis Kim Vande Pitte, designer textile de 31 ans basée à Bruxelles.

En 2012 j’ai lancé la marque KVP Textile Design, j’y crée des motifs et les développe sous la forme de collections de tissus, de linge pour la maison, d’objets de décoration et de mobilier.

Mes créations sont imprimées en sérigraphie dans mon atelier ou numériquement en sous-traitance, mais aussi matelassées, brodées, plissées à la machine à coudre.


//////// THE BRAND ////////

KVP - Textile Design is above all a love story, a constant vibration for patterns and their power, for a graphic universe and balanced arrangements, for the passion of the creative process; it's a fascination for the final touch and the sense of well-being that textiles bring to an interior.

The graphic universe of my brand explores the infinite possibilities of geometrical shapes and lines. From basic movements to complex ones, growing as a structure. I use construction and deconstruction to define my patterns, as well as structured and random movements. These create a sense of optical illusion and vibrant graphism with expressive colors that speak to you and your home.

**KVP - Textile Design c’est avant tout une histoire d’amour, une vibration constante pour les motifs et leur pouvoir, pour un univers graphique et des arrangements équilibrés, pour la passion du processus créatif ; c’est une fascination pour la touche finale et le bien-être qu’apporte le textile dans un intérieur.

L’univers graphique de ma marque explore les infinies possibilités qu’offre la ligne droite, de sa nature élémentaire vers une complexité croissante et structurelle, de la construction à la déconstruction, de l’ordre à l’aléatoire, mêlant ainsi vibrations optiques et graphisme modulaire.

//////// CONCRETE LANDSCAPE  - new collection 2019 ////////

The money that you pledge will cover expenses related to the production of the new collection KVP - Textile Design.

CONCRETE LANDSCAPE is inspired by the Brutalist architectural movement.

I have always been fascinated by the uncompromising minimalism of these buildings, oppressive in both their massive and rigorous sculptural forms.

Their thrilling graphic aesthetic, pure and honest, without any superfluous item nor artifice.

A raw beauty.

I wanted to translate this paradoxical tension by constructing patterns with simple lines and shapes, easy to grasp, while creating volumes with a series of modular blocks and shades. I also use techniques such as pleating or quilting to create optical effects and tacticle sensations

**L'argent que vous engagez permettra de couvrir les dépenses liées à la production de la nouvelle collection KVP – Textile Design.

CONCRETE LANDSCAPE s’inspire du mouvement architectural Brutaliste. 

J’ai toujours été fascinée par le minimalisme sans compromis de ces bâtiments, à la fois oppressants par leurs formes sculpturales massives et rigoureuses. Et saisissants d’une esthétique graphique pure et honnête, sans superflu ni artifice.

Une beauté brute.

J’ai voulu traduire cette tension paradoxale en construisant mes motifs à partir d’une lisibilité et d’une simplicité formelle du plan ; tout en jouant sur le volume par la succession de blocs modulaires, par le placement des ombrages, et par l’utilisation de techniques jouant sur l’effet d'optique et la sensation tactile telles que le plissage ou le matelassage. 

The collection will feature : 

  • Jacquard woven fabrics, made in France    
  • Digitally printed and pleated cotton fabrics, made in Holland and Belgium 
  • Wools and velvets silkscreened and quilted, made in Belguim
  • Woven and tufted carpets, made in Portugal
  • Knitted plaids, made in Germany
  • A bench made of french oak, steel and woven fabric, made in France
  • As well as modular pouffes which can be transformed into coffee tables, made in France

**La collection se déploiera sur des tissus jacquard tissés ; des tissus en coton imprimés digitalement et plissés ; des laines et velours sérigraphiés et matelassés ; des tapis tissés et tuftés ; une banquette composée de chêne Français, d'acier et de tissu tissé ; de plaids tricotés ; ainsi que de poufs modulables en table d’appoint.


//////// POWERFUL PATTERNS ////////

I have always been sensitive to graphic and vibrant universes that constantly capture my eyes. In my opinion it is what the pattern must perform: to live while spreading on surfaces, on objects, to dynamize the space or to homogenize it, to make you vibrate and move those who look at them.

They hold a powerful role: they mark an identity by revealing our personality, our aspirations; they represent what we love, what makes us feel good, who we are and how we want to be perceived by others.

They revive and dress an interior, bring comfort and thrill the spirit of those who look at them.

A pattern, as a color, has the power to radically transform any space in our interior.

That's why I have developped, besides my collections, a bespoke service (adaptability of colors, materials, scales, patterns, applications), so that my textiles can accurately match the identity of my clients, enhance their interior and make it more captivating. 

**J’ai toujours été sensible aux univers graphiques et vibrants qui captent sans cesse mon regard. A mon sens c’est ce que doivent représenter les motifs : vivre en se déployant sur des surfaces, sur des objets, dynamiser l’espace ou l’homogénéiser, faire vibrer et toucher ceux qui les regardent.

Ils tiennent un rôle puissant : ils marquent une identité en révélant notre personnalité, nos aspirations ; ils représentent ce que nous aimons, ce qui nous fait nous sentir bien, ce que nous sommes et la façon dont nous souhaitons être perçu par les autres.

Ils ravivent et habillent un intérieur, apportent du réconfort et font vibrer l’esprit de ceux qui les regardent.

Un motif, tout comme une couleur, a le pouvoir de transformer radicalement n’importe quel espace dans notre intérieur.

C’est pour cela que j’ai mis en place, parallèlement à mes collections, un service sur mesure (adaptabilité des coloris, matières, échelles, motifs, applications), afin que mes textiles puissent correspondre avec justesse à l’identité de mes clients, embellir leur intérieur et le rendre fascinant, à leur image.


//////// CHALLENGES - WHY I NEED YOU ////////

This year is a turning point for me and my brand, I’ve embarked on an exciting journey: the entrepreneurial adventure to make KVP more than a dream and a passion, a life project.

I am determined to grow my brand and move it to a commercial level by expanding and optimizing the range of products I offer with the expertise and know-how of my partners and subcontractors.

This development of the brand will allow it to gain a presence at internationally renowned shows such as Maison & Objet; and it will allow me to offer the best to my customers, and to you dear backers ! In all transparency, reliability and with the best possible customer service.

By helping a young brand like KVP, you backers, support creativity, know-how, craftsmanship; more than a passion, a project of professional life; as well as a responsible production and consumption 100% made in Europe. 

This year, with your support, carpets and woven fabrics could enter the new collection alongside digitally printed and knitted fabrics!

I also want to continue to develop my quilts (screen printed in my workshop and then quilted with the sewing machine) on high quality velvet and wool fabrics. 

To complement the small furniture range, a bench will also be made, mixing wood and steel structure, surmounted by a mattress covered with woven fabric. 

If the goal is successful, I will be more than happy, but I can also fund the sampling of fabrics, the catalog of the new collection and collaborate with professionals for the shooting !

**Cette année précise un tournant décisif pour ma marque et moi, je me lance avec excitation dans l’aventure entrepreneuriale, voulant faire de KVP plus qu’un rêve et une passion, un projet de vie. 

Je suis déterminée à faire grandir ma marque et à la faire évoluer vers une sphère professionnelle en étoffant et en optimisant la gamme de mes produits auprès de l’expertise et du savoir-faire de mes partenaires et sous-traitants.

Et ce afin de pouvoir être présente sur des salons de renommée internationale tel que Maison & Objets ; et de pouvoir proposer le meilleur à mes clients, et à vous chers investisseurs, dans la plus grande transparence, fiabilité et satisfaction possible. 

En aidant une jeune marque comme KVP, vous soutenez la créativité, le savoir-faire, l’artisanat ; plus qu’une passion, un projet de vie professionnel ; ainsi qu’une production responsable, une consommation consciencieuse 100% réalisée en Europe. 

Cette année, grâce à votre soutien, des tapis et tissus tissés pourraient faire leur entrée dans la nouvelle collection, aux côtés des tissus imprimés digitalement et tricotés ! 

Je souhaite aussi continuer à développer mes matelassages (imprimés en sérigraphie dans mon atelier puis matelassés à la machine à coudre) sur des tissus en velours et en laine de qualités. 

Une banquette sera aussi réalisée, mélangeant structure de chêne et d'acier, surmontée d’une mousse recouverte de tissu tissé. Venant ainsi compléter la gamme de petits mobiliers d’appoint.

Si l'objectif est dépassé, je serai on ne peut plus heureuse, mais je pourrai aussi financer l'échantillonnage des tissus, le catalogue de la nouvelle collection ainsi que collaborer avec des professionnels pour le shooting !

Risks and challenges

For me decoration is a matter of balance and precision with a touch of dynamism, it must be a source of well-being, be functional while reflecting quality.
That's why I prefer to work with natural materials, functional and modular solutions and I like to integrate originality and exclusivity in the products I propose.

In a concern for eco-responsibility and respect for the human dimension, the production is 100% made in Europe.
I take care of the quality and the origin of the materials by collaborating with rigorous companies which have strong and respectable values and are in favor of small scale productions and slow design.

All of these criteria have a cost, and that's why I need people like you, who share the same values, and believe in my initiative.

**Pour moi la décoration est une affaire d’équilibre et de justesse avec des pointes de dynamisme, elle doit être source de bien-être, fonctionnelle et qualitative.
C’est pourquoi je privilégie les matériaux naturels, les solutions fonctionnelles et modulables, l’originalité et l’exclusivité dans les produits que je propose.

Dans un soucis d’éco-responsabilité et de respect pour la dimension humaine, la production est 100% made in Europe.
Je veille à la qualité et à l’origine des matériaux, je collabore avec des entreprises rigoureuses, aux valeurs fortes et respectables, favorables à de petites productions, au slow design.

Tous ces critères ont un coût, et c’est pour cela que j’ai besoin de personnes comme vous, qui partagez les mêmes valeurs, et croyez en mon initiative.
