  • English
  • Anne Boermans

With more than 25 years of experience in the fields of marketing, management, and media, Anne Boermans is a seasoned entrepreneur, making her the ideal partner in a link-up with designer-artist Nienke Hoogvliet. The two met in 2019, and after multiple conversations and discussing the quintessential literature on seaweed, Anne too became convinced of the impact and potential of seaweed as a resource for yarn and dye.
She has been an active campaigner for implementing new developments with a blue economy motive. Anne is striving for a step-by-step upscaling of seaweed as a renewable resource for the textile industry.
