About us

Cold winter weather can make it hard to get out of bed, but Wintervacht has the answer to your wish to stay wrapped up in blankets. Since 2013 we have been creating elegant clothes from old blankets and curtains, giving new life to textiles that otherwise would have lost their purpose. Wintervacht started in 2012 by designers Yoni van Oorsouw en Manon van Hoeckel who met in design school. The idea of a blanket coat started during sewing lessons from Yoni’s mom at the kitchen table.

Since june 2017 Studio RYN took over the activities of Yoni and Manon. Studio RYN is a collaboration of education (Rijn IJssel), multiple cultural and social partners and partners from the fashion industry. Together they provide an excellent route to High-end Fashion maker to their students. With Wintervacht Studio RYN gives the students and alumni the chance to learn entrepreneurship in practise
