A unique insight into the world of Van Gogh

The meticulous creation process of Van Gogh’s old sketchbook replicas was covered in Het Financiële Dagblad on September the 21st.

The old sketchbooks provide a unique insight into the world of Van Gogh. More than 130 years old, they have been replicated with extreme precision in which the graphic industry experts in the Netherlands needed to apply the very latest technologies. Van Heek Textiles was also able to make a contribution. We are proud that a big part of the old sketchbooks was bound in our linen (Fancy and Halflinnen Dark) materials and could replicate the look and feel of the sketchbooks used by Van Gogh.

The collection can be seen at the stand of Van Gogh Museum at the upcoming Frankfurter Buchmesse from 16-20 October.
