Kendra Niederkorn is a textile designer based out of Hickory, North Carolina (soon to be relocating back to the Raleigh-Durham/”Triangle” area in North Carolina.) She joined the HBF Textiles Product Development Team in 2012, where she has three woven products under her name as well as “a slew of independent print projects.”

When describing her background in textiles and her design style, Kendra wrote that her designs “center around composition and attention to negative space. Using a variety of techniques including illustration, printmaking, digital scanning, acrylic, water color, and digitally generated images, she cultivates imagery from the forms in her environment. Niederkorn grew up in Iowa and North Carolina, she attended Savannah College of Art and Design where she exhibited in and curated several exhibitions. She earned her BFA in graphic design, a minor in fibers and studied abroad in Southern France. She continues to further her design sense through travel and a pursuit of knowledge in the fields of art, fashion, and textiles.”
