Nienke Slotboom is a Leiden (NL) based artist specialised in pattern and fashion design, illustration and ceramics.
After having worked for several years in the fashion industry, for houses such as Vanessa Bruno, Christian Dior, Scotch&Soda and Tommy Hilfiger, Nienke launched her own label in 2015. On a freelance basis she now works for different clients in the fashion, interior and film/tv industry, and has created a boutique collection of wallpaper and fabrics called Hella Idún (2018).
In 2015 the label The Marching Hare was founded. Out of her love for illustration, nature and animals a small range of luxury birth posters and cards were made, as well as ceramic birth plates. The plates are hand painted by Nienke in her work studio in Leiden.
