“You have to learn it all, then forget it and start again like a child. This is the inner evolution”
-Karel Appel

With his work that looks childlike and naive Karel Appel (1921 – 2006) is an inspiration for Sjaak in his daily work. The dreamy, colorful yet powerful paintings by Karel Appel made him become one of the most famous modern artists in the Netherlands. To honor his work this Hul le Kes item is named after Appel. During his studies Appel met Corneille, another artist to whom we named some of our items.


The garment is made of 100% Upcycled Cotton.

Hullekes rust dye is a iron based dye and done by hand in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Each dye is unique.

Made at our Manufacturing Studio in Arnhem, the Netherlands.
