Yael Harnik

Textile, Fashion & Jewerly Design

“Textile is a form of grid or net through which I explore systems of order and rhythm. My need to study the structure of fabric, to deconstruct it and to feel it—for example, through the act of unraveling—is tied to my desire to discover the fabric’s very essence. Studying the form and the production process of textile enables me to better comprehend how the phenomena that shape our perception of the world are in a constant state of flux between the fixed and the variable".

Independent textile designer Yael Harnik graduated from the Textile Design department at Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art, interned at Tory Burch in New York, trained as a textile designer at a French company in Vietnam and worked as a designer for Israeli swimwear manufacturer Gottex for 3 years.

Harnik was nominated for the 2022 Edmond de Rothschild Design Award for Emerging Fashion, Textile, and Jewelry Designers.
