The Heinen story
It starts at the end of the ’70s when Jaap Heinen who draws and paints in Japanese and Chinese Imari style, also starts to paint in Delft blue. In Putten, he begins a small atelier in which he also glazes and bakes. His son Jorrit joins. When - starting from 2007 - the demand for hand-painted Delft blue falls back, Jaap and Jorrit open their own factory in China which produces in Putten designed earthenware, focused on the souvenir market. Hand painting, however, remains a passion and it grows again in popularity since 2015. Employing the best designers, decorators, and ceramic technicians and with love for the centuries-old Delft blue craft, Heinen brings Delft blue tradition and innovation: Creating new traditions. The Heinen KLEI collection proves that this goes further than the traditional color combination of blue and white.
