At her Viennese knitting workshop, Veronika Persché produces fabrics for use in the creative professions in both Austria and abroad. Her knitting expertise is in demand by both (fashion) designers and artists-these customers select colors, materials and designs in order to create the fabrics with which they themselves want to work.

In this respect, the creative process begins one stage earlier than is usually the case. All the previous designs and works by Veronika Persché are available to stimulate clients' imaginations and demonstrate the technical possibilities inherent in this special “artistic service.”

In the wake of numerous collaborations with designers from Vienna, fashion designers and artists from abroad also began taking notice of Persché's work. Her materials have recently been seen in fashion shows in places like Paris, Amsterdam and Barcelona, as well as in a première at the Zurich Opera. Other public appearances include trade fairs in Berlin and Copenhagen as well as at the Designers' Trail in Brussels.

Persché is open to inspiration anytime and everywhere-it can come from posters, signs, lettering and packaging as well as from façade ornaments and from the colors and patterns of others' clothes. The Viennese textile designer is constantly trying out new materials, patterns and effects, welcoming any material that her computer-driven fine knitting machines will process—be it mohair, polyester, rubber or metal threads. Ever the experimenter, she enjoys knitting together things that at first glance don't seem to belong together at all.

“My working method is somewhat bipolar. First there's the construction-strict, perfect and regularly textured,” explains the designer, who has a firm grounding in art history. “The opposite pole is the material: this is organic and often imperfect or irregular, making it a good source of surprises, coincidences and accidents.”

She discovers inspiring textures in the architecture of the Bauhaus movement, of Viennese public housing and of Italian fascism, as well as in Russian Constructivism and M.C. Escher's drawings. In processing these, she orients herself on the great role models provided by the Wiener Werkstätte and numerous traditional arts and crafts.
