Traditional craftsmanship meets contemporary design in these luxurious, handfelted ‘Glow’ cushions. A lover of all things artisinal and an advocate of fair trade, Mariëlle found a group of women in Kathmandu (Nepal), whose expert hands turn wool into glorious felt ‘sheets’ with geometric designs felted into them. This provides these women with sustainable work and ensures their access to an independent income, while producing something truly beautiful. The ‘sheets’ are transformed into cushions in Italy, by backing them with rich fabrics such as velvet and silk/stain.

Mariëlle Brinkmann

The daughter of a creative father, Mariëlle Brinkmann (1970) was exposed to all things beautiful from an early age. She grew up hungry to explore the world of craftsmanship, both literally and figuratively speaking.

During one of her many trips of discovery, she visited London’s Leighton House, the culmination of one man’s vision and the epitome of the Aesthetic Movement. A lightbulb went on in Mariëlle’s mind and ever since, she has been travelling the world, collaborating with local craftspeople who bring her designs to life.

In 2016, Mariëlle founded her own brand, M&Otto Design, designing amazing pillows and rugs collections with more than a touch of ‘nomadic chic’ yet very much at home in the world of modern architecture and design. The fact that she also collaborates with Linteloo is something both parties are extremely proud of.
