ABOUT ︎ warenhuys is created by Maren Huysmans. After my studies in graphic design, I studied to become a tailor and learnt pattern drawing. I am a frequent cyclist and for the last few years I have immersed myself into rainwear that is truly fit for moving in the city. I designed models and drew patterns in my home studio. I worked on prototypes and adjusted them until I managed to find a suitable fit.
In 2019, I produced my first small batch of rain garments; this was a big test. Afterwards, I carried out a survey and collected people’s experiences. This was all concluded with a new, finely tuned collection that was launched through a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign.
