Inspired by artists from all over the world who colour our lives, two like-minded students founded Wolkmood. Wolkmood is an international collective of independent artists, who all share a passion for creation.
Since 2014, Wolkmood is embedding illustration, graphic design and photography into your everyday lifestyle. This way, Wolkmood creates a platform for artists from all corners of the world, and supports them to reach the audience they deserve.
With a strong feeling for social responsibility and an eye for quality and durability, it is an understatement for Wolkmood to provide honest and high quality organic cotton products that will be loved by anyone who wears them.
HOW TO SUPPORT US
MORE ABOUT WOLKMOOD
An important part of Wolkmood’s mission is to provide high quality clothing. To achieve this goal we examined all possible fabrics without limiting ourselves to only ‘’green’’ products. After comparing and analyzing all the different kinds of fabric, we simply concluded that organic cotton beats all other fabrics every single time.
WATER BASED INK
We also compared numerous printing methods in order to guarantee the highest quality possible. The use of conventional Ink would be the simple and cheap option and therefore an obvious choice. This is why we examined other options to make sure we can always guarantee the best possible quality.
Results were staggering. We soon came to the conclusion that the prints made with water-based ink, exceed the prints using conventional ink greatly. The results are softer and the colours are more vibrant. Not to mention that the prints are more durable and resist a great deal better to ironing.
HOW WE WORK
- Our shared passion for art drives us to search and pursuit talented artists to join the collective.
- We select only the artists we believe to be worthy of a global audience.
- In collaboration with the artist, a selection is made of one or more pieces of art we feel like is made to be featured in a Wolkmood collection.
- The final step consists of printing the carefully selected pieces of art on our high-quality bio-cotton shirts using water-based ink.
- The freshly printed pieces of art can now easily be ordered online. The art will now be worn by those who share our vision.
EXPLOASIS SPRING/SUMMER 2015
Wolkmood stands by the belief that, self-realisation is the ultimate goal to feel alive. The key aspect to self-realisation is exploring. Exploring shape, the earth, the universe. The paradox of finding an ultimate oasis through living a life of eternal discovery defines exploasis which characterizes the artworks to be found at the heart of our Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Wolkmood is established on a solid foundation; We already invested in an innovative website and professional brand design. However, we already have amazing plans in the making.
Now we need your help first. All backings you provide, will directly fund the production of our premiere collection. which is needed in order to kickstart Wolkmood and make all of our dreams come true. We simply cannot do this without your help!
Wolkmood was co-founded by Wesley Romeijnders and Job van Kerkom. We work as a tight-knit team. Wesley controls the financial ends, whilst Job is the conceptual mind of Wolkmood
During the past ten months, a solid brand foundation has been created. During this process we have always been evaluating our vision and concept. This, to make sure that our own enthusiasm is not blinding from reality.
For now, Wolkmood products can only be acquired in two ways. You can either buy Wolkmood in FEE concept store, a carefully selected boutique in the Netherlands. Or you can order online on Wolkmood.com. For our autumn/winter 2015 collection, we aim to be sold in more selected boutiques and webshops. For now, we are incredibly pleased to announce a great opening/kick-off event at FEE concept store located in Sittard. Here we will not only be launching our brand, but also exhibit some great works of art made by the Wolkmood artist collective.
Risks and challenges
Wesley Romeijnders and Job van Kerkom have known each other since they were still toddlers. The foundation of this partnership has only grown stronger throughout the years. Their trust in each other has led to many smaller projects in the previous years.
Wolkmood is the result of all previous experiences combined. Since we've already fully developed the exploasis collection, including the final digital artwork files from the artists, the main risk is a possible production delay. Although we will always have to face small uncertainties, we have the full confidence to overcome any obstacle as Wolkmood will grow and change.
To keep costs low and quality high, we have been involving professionals in our personal network with Wolkmood. For example, a professional graphic designer and artist with years of experience created our brand design and supervises all our visuals. Wolkmood is also under supervision of a financial director and experienced entrepeneur. We also work with a professional, who has a great network in the dutch fashion scene. She supervises all the Photography done by and for wolkmood, to help us reach our target audience. An important challenge for us will always be to expand this network of professionals.
We are thankfull for your interest in Wolkmood and would be honored by your support.
