Antwerp-based designers, Job Smeets, and Dutch artist, Nynke Tynagel, of Studio Job collaborate with Natalie to create a stencil pattern inspired by the integration of urban and rural life. The final artworks feature diverse graphic renderings of mechanical gears, flowers, aeroplanes, bugs, machine guns, electrical transmission towers, and cogs that are woven into hand-sewn and machine-made pieces.
