quality control

In a world full of colour, my role is to think in black and white. Either it’s good, or it’s not. There’s nothing in between. No matter how beautiful something is, if it fails to meet the required quality standards, it all stops there. Such an assessment is not simply plucked out of thin air. It is preceded by numerous tests. We get to know more about the fabric and its potential by conducting hanging, rolling, light, drilling and cutting tests. If irregularities are visible …

Aleksandra Gaca

textile designer

I am fascinated by structures, spatial forms and three dimensionality of textiles. Feelings, emotion and aesthetics are essential to me when I design them. In my work, I push the boundaries of the impossible and try to find links between tradition and the current industry. Over the years, I have specialized in weaving and applying three-dimensionality to woven fabrics, a specialty resulting from experimenting with weaves and materials.

Some say I’m one of the most colourful characters at Lienesch, and they may be right. I’m a people person and make friends easily. I want to know our customers’ stories and I enjoy hearing about their passions and visions on textile. My goal is to show customers what Lienesch can do for them. My passion and drive make it possible for me to truly help my customers. The first thing I do when I enter a new building is…

culture & communication

For me, connection is the magic word. Everyone has their own specific skills, and these were used optimally in this collection. I find it important to connect and to give professionals the space to contribute. The development process was a terrific journey, with this collection as a beautiful souvenir. The new collection started with attending expos and meetings. It is a combination of observing, talking, listening, and feeling.

Christiane Müller

creative advisor

For a collection to be good, it has to be balanced. A balance created when a meticulous mix of ingredients come together. This means looking for textures and structures that provide a rich material experience and for basics that fit in flexibly. An eye-catcher truly completes the collection and tells its story. My speciality is the overall collection policy. As a designer and colour specialist, I provided advice on the ambience, look and feel and …

commercial director

Listening is probably the most important aspect of my job. Listening to the client’s needs and desires. We incorporated this feedback into the new pleated collection, but we also looked toward the future with a completely independent vision. A collection that had to be accessible to everyone. If you ask me, the result is exceptional. People sometimes ask me why a German would work for a Dutch company. The new collection provides the answer to that.

quality & facilities

Creating a pleasant work environment is what I do. The people at Lienesch have to be able to do what they’re good at. If problems or complaints arise, I make sure they’re resolved. Not resolving issues jeopardises the work atmosphere. And a good atmosphere is extremely important for ensuring a meticulous and pleasant work environment. People work hard at Lienesch, but there’s also room for humour.

At Lienesch, it’s all about quality. I don’t just mean the quality of our products, but also the quality of our people. We believe that if you enjoy your work and do what you love, this will be reflected in the quality of the product. I really like this way of thinking and believe it brings out the best in me. I started as a packer at Lienesch and quickly realised that I was working with beautiful products and the finest fabrics. The care …

Merit de Jong

graphic designer

I love sketching in my studio in the morning light.
The morning sunshine that illuminates my table as I first set pencil to paper serves as natural inspiration for my work. It is the beginning of a journey into the unknown. I was captivated by the shapes of nature at an early age. At home, we had a large bookcase full of books about nature, anatomy and art, which inspired me. The beautiful illustrations in those books gave me the sense that …

sales office

Compassion and understanding are important personality attributes in my line of work. In order to offer the best solution, you have to be able to understand the customer’s problem or request. At least, that’s the case for me. I have to be able to see it and feel it. Sometimes you have to make the impossible possible. Fortunately, my colleagues share my passion for textiles. As a result, we can always make the impossible…

Bart Wesselink

fabric inspector

Fabrics that have been designed and manufactured with such passion, need to be inspected in the same way. Inspecting is something you do with passion. We are the last to get our hands on the fabrics before they leave Lienesch. Literally, because everything is checked by hand. We check the fabrics on our special light table for the smallest irregularities, variations in colour, marks or tears. It is meticulous work.

Caroline van Ockenburg

visual artist

To me it’s important to enchant others with my work. Whether in bronze, ceramics, wood, stone or fabric,
I want to delight and surprise people with a creation in which I believe wholeheartedly. People sometimes say that amazement is the beginning of insight. Every insight is new to children, that is why they can still be so wonderfully amazed. When Lienesch asked me to work with them on the children’s collection, I felt very honoured.

Logistics involves much more than transporting products from A to B. We are responsible for the first impression and our work requires special care. It’s important to us that customers are satisfied the moment they lay eyes on the product. The quality of our packaging and delivery has to match that of our products. We want recipients to want to unpack our products. They deserve it and so do the people…
