The handknitted sweaters of Loes Veenstra

Since 1955, Loes Veenstra has knitted over 550 sweaters and stored them in her home on the 2nd Carnissestraat in Rotterdam. The sweaters have never been worn. Until a certain day.
Christien Meindertsma and Wandschappen organized a flashmob in the neighbourhood of Loes Veenstra where the sweaters of Loes played the main role. Through the sweaters and this special event the locals are brought together. A successful, nice social design project. The sweater are all presented in a book called “Het Verzameld Breiwerk van Loes Veenstra uit de 2e Carnissestraat” designed by Christien Meindertsma. This book is published by Wandschappen for DNA Charlois.
