Inke Heiland is an artist/designer living in the Netherlands. She graduated in 2002 at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
Wallpaper Wildlife (behangbeesten) was at first just an idea for her son's bedroom. She was so satisfied with the result that she presented the silhouettes in 2004 On "Rietveld naar de beurs", an exposition/sales event for new design which is held once a year in Amsterdam. After lots of positive reactions she decided to expand the collection.
The silhouettes are made from real vintage and designer wallpaper. Due to the age of the paper and the traditional printing techniques irregularities may occur. This is part of the appeal of the product!
The silhouettes are all hand crafted in their own workshop, or at the sheltered workshop DZB in their hometown of Leiden.
