About

Ripping works of art out of the museum and throwing it on fabric to create astonishing sweaters. That's what One of Hundred is set out to do.

From a specific period, style or subject, works will be selected and transformed to hundred sweaters per work of art. Not a single more. Giving you the opportunity to wear a unique piece of clothing.

Starting of with The Dutch Golden Age, One of Hundred selected extraordinary works from a few of Holland's finest painters, currently on display in the Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam.

The Rijksmuseum Collection defines a sense of prosperity and optimism, but also marks the debut of One of Hundred as a label. Hereby presenting the first three designs of this collection.

 Bollongier painted this still life shortly after the Dutch stock market crash in 1637, due to the heavy speculation in tulip bulbs. Before the crash the value of an actual bouquet was so high, that people who couldn't afford them got paintings like these instead.

Coming from a wealthy and established family of tradesman and regents, Gerard Andriesz Bicker has the typical looks of a spoiled son. Where his father (left) is formal and sober, Gerard has no shame in displaying the wealth and richness he has inherited.

Having received samples of different fabrics from the manufacturer, 100% polyester is selected as the best material for garment printing. Not only is it suitable for high resolution printing, it also results in great color depth and unwashable prints. Making a One of Hundred sweater last the lifetime of true piece of art.

With you as a backer, One of Hundred launches a webstore where it will present new collections every season. A rich history of art and culture around the world left us with millions of beautiful artworks, challenging One of Hundred to find the hidden pearls and revive them in the form of a unique sweater, for you to wear...

Risks and challenges

One of Hundred is a one man's operation run by me, Casper Smit. This makes it very flexible to execute but can also be a risk. When I get hit by a meteoroid for example..
Don't worry. For now I'm fine and doing well managing the project by myself. The main obstacle will be sending out all the pledges, but the concept of selling only 100 pieces per design keeps this feasible.
If the factory delivers the products in time they should arrive in the end of July, which will give me 2 months(!) to send all the pledges out.
This will be more than enough time to give every backer's pledge the time and attention it deserves.
