The story of Hilde and her twin sister

Hilde co-created a beautiful carpet from which the symbolism and memories spring off.

Hilde's twin sister Lieve committed suicide a few years ago. In the carpet, which Hilde herself designed, the garments of the two sisters come together both literally and figuratively.

 

The dark blue and red side reflect (and are the clothes of) Lieve, the brighter right side reflects Hilde. The clothes of both sisters come together in the center of the carpet in the form of a gigantic diamond. From the art of the weavers, this form is the symbol for togetherness, coming together and a moment to share stories. 

 

This unique work of art is now hanging behind a glass wall in Hilde's entrance hall, every time you walk into the house, you can admire the carpet and take all the memories, beautiful and less easy, with you.
