Gyda Kropff studied Textile and Monumental Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, The Netherlands. Her passion for patterns and her love for refined details are the inspirational fonts for all she now creates in her studio.

Patterns teach us that each detail has its specific place within a greater, harmonious unity. This theme is interwoven in each facet of Fabel, the label under which Gyda has been producing her designs for since 2006. The seed of Fabel was planted when her two children were born. Curious about how they would find their own unique place as part of the wider world, she asked: “Who are you? And what will we do together in our lives?”
