Design studio Tas-ka is a young company by Jantien Baas en Hester Worst.After graduation from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, they started their own company in 2004 called Tas-ka.
The Tas-ka collection is based on the theme “house”. For the collection we designed our own fabrics with two different patterns.
The two patterns are screen-printed on fabric made of 100 % cotton in four colors, brown, blue, yellow and pink.
The fabrics are used for the whole collection of Tas-ka. The collection consists of kid’s goods, living-, and fashion accessories. The shape of our products is also inspired by the theme houses, such as our breadboards, playhouses and felt brooches.
All the Tas-ka products and fabrics are made and produced in The Netherlands.
Tas-ka only uses natural materials such as leather, cotton, wool felt, wood and paper.
In August 2008 Tas-ka opened a new webshop “ Collectedbytas-ka”.
Collected by Tas-ka is a collection products from all over the world. In the webshop we will sell our own Tas-ka collection and also products from other designers. We have a wonderful selection special books and magazines. To give the webshop a personal character we will sell old ceramics, vintage furniture and beautiful illustrations. Everything we think is beautiful and special and we would like to share with you, we will collect in our webshop. So you have an experience of being in a candy shop.We also write every week about things that inspiring us at our weblog.
