Atelier Lotte Martens stands for

Beauty

Beauty is the driving force behind our design process. With her products, she wishes to tell a story that inspires people and that makes them smile. When you buy a Lotte Martens product, you know you are holding a precious piece of textile, assembled with love.

Innovation

Our atelier is not only a creative laboratory, but also a knowledge lab where innovative inks and printing procedures are developed. Our design process is a constant search for innovation, which makes us leading in Flanders in terms of textiles.

Passion

Our prints are designed with passion and a strong sense for colors and textures. All lotte martens products are of high quality, made with love and dedication for the profession. We are always looking for market gaps and ways to bridge them in a corporate social responsibility.  

Creation & inspiration

Atelier lotte martens is a manufacturing company with a focus on production and design. We create fabrics that inspire others to create. Buy your fabrics, get inspired by our tips and sewing patterns, and make your own unique garment!

Local & sustainable

All lotte martens products are hand printed in a small atelier in Leuven, Belgium, by highly valued craftspeople with poor job abilities. We use ecological inks and our production is zero waste: all fabric and ink leftovers are reused for new products. This way we contribute to a circular economy. 

Unique

No pre-bought prints, no child labour in foreign countries: every step in the production process, from the first design to the final touch, is completed with the greatest care. Because our fabrics are printed by hand, they are all slightly different and thus unique.
