In 1990, Saskia Markx graduated in Fashion Design from the Willem de Koning Academie in Rotterdam. She worked as a designer for renowned fashion brands before setting up her own design studio, StudioMarkx. With its expertise in sustainable corporate fashion concepts, StudioMarkx has already designed some award-winning collections.
Atelier Markx was the answer to Saskia’s desire for more artistic freedom. In her atelier in De Wasserij, she designs and produces scarves under the MARKX label. Each scarf is unique and ethically made, with high-quality existingmaterials, leftover stock, and vintage couture fabrics.
“For me, MARKX is the result of re-creating scarves with materials from another life. It’s more than upcycling. It’s giving them a deeper value by adding a new layer of my own imagination.”
