As a teenager Diana Ritfeld was excited by the traditional Suriname headscarves that her grandma wore. These angisas are Surinamese cultural heritage; each form expresses a different message. The creative headscarves that Ritfeld wears and distributes are created without any pre-conceived plan and are artistic, free designs. Be just as spontaneous in creating your own headscarf with the help of Diana.
This headwrapping by Diana Ritfeld, specially designed for Het Nieuwe Instituut, can now be seen on the place is was made in the exhibition Speculative Design Archive. Find out more about Vlisco in this exhibition.
Ever since she was a girl, Diana Ritfeld has been designing her own headscarves. She currently gives workshops and lectures and sells her headscarves. Her brand Di’xpression is intended to give women more self-confidence by wearing a headscarf.
