Jongerius worked closely with both Netherlands-based Post and Truly Truly to develop six plaids for the museum's By TextielMuseum label – which uses items in the museum's collection as a source of inspiration for a range of new collaboratively designed products such as scarves, tea towels and other textiles.
Collaborating with the museum's TextielLab, the designers were given an opportunity to experiment with a range of materials and techniques, developing final designs in partnership with Jongerius at her Berlin studio.
"The technical knowledge and the museum collection were offered as a source of inspiration to the designers, allowing a new generation to further develop and continue the craftsmanship and culture," the museum said in a statement. "As an educational institute, this is how we would like to underline the significance of conveying knowledge to a new generation of talented designers."
Graphic design studio Truly Truly created their own stitches – inspired by hand-knitting techniques – which were then produced by the TextielLab's computer-controlled knitting machine. Their plaid features paler cloud-shaped sections surrounded by more dense pattern, and is available in yellow, red and blue versions.
Post's zig-zag-covered plaid – available in black and pink, green and pink, or grey and yellow – was designed to be "impossible" to make by hand, with each stitch created in a different colour to give each textile a two-tone effect.
The plaid throws were on display at the Ketelhuisplein in Eindhoven for this year's Dutch Design Week, which ran from 17 to 25 October 2015.
