We receive applications on a regular basis. We go on creative sprees on Instagram and save every artist profile that we'd like to invite to katoen.club. We pool all the talent, then we form groups of four to invite for the collaboration.
When we make a selection we usually try to combine different styles and media (so we can offer diverse prints) and look for a certain aesthetic. This is hard to explain in objective terms but basically we combine "what we fall in love with" and "what we think people might like and buy". If your work is selected, we will reach out to you to see if you're still interested and available for the collaboration. The decision-making moment is of course when we meet (ideally IRL) and if everyone feels good and is equally enthusiastic about the collaboration.
If we didn't get back to you, this might be simply because you're in line, or perhaps your work is not what we're looking for.
Perhaps we overlooked your potential? You can always give campaigning a try. Check katoen.shop for more info.
We see every application and consider each artist. We already have a really long list of artists we'd like to collaborate with and this list is only getting longer each day. We wish we could collaborate with everyone now but we can only do so slowly. So we can't tell you exactly when we will contact you.
In short, hopefully soon! No time to wait? You can always give campaigning a try. Check katoen.shop for more info on that.
In the shop, we have all kinds of different colors and models. Anyone who comes in can get these with or without a print. So when the shop is open, things go fast. We can't update the webshop inventory in realtime, which complicates stock management. This is the short of it.
Although we're always thinking about how we can do this, obviously, it would be a huge improvement.
