Les Mailles jewellery designers Jennifer Hiller and Marita Schwenkedel merge innovative production methods with modern materials and a fresh approach. The name Les Mailles (French for the stitches) goes back to their first collection, crocheted pendant in different, harmonious colours. It is those design ideas with a modern twist which distinguish Hiller and Schwenkedel, who met during their studies of industrial design at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design. “The initial idea developed into four collections, which are very different but still coherent and harmonise in a special way,” Hiller says.
