About Anne-Claire The Designer
Anne-Claire studied industrial design in Eindhoven where her love for traditional craftsmanship began – weaving, printing and crochet. In 1986 Anne-Claire worked as a designer for Esprit which prepared her to start her own journey by opening Anne-Claire Petit Accessories. In 2002 she began to focus on kids & home accessories allowing her to dedicate her time to create a variety of products that show her love for color and natural materials.
The world of Anne-Claire Petit is a happy world. With recognizable color schemes and ‘feel good’ products, ranging from an extended animal family to baby toys, from deco objects to furniture and from cushions to wallets. In the turmoil of present times, Anne-Claire sees it as her personal goal to cherish traditional textile techniques by creating modern objects for contemporary homes.
Most Anne-Claire Petit Accessories are hand-crocheted by women living in countryside villages of Northern China. In Amsterdam, Anne-Claire Petit’s creative team brainstorms ideas, chooses color schemes and makes sketches that are sent to China to crochet experts who create the first sample and pattern for production. Once the final design is agreed upon, women in the villages of Northern China start crocheting.
