Karin & Roger Stevens hail from East Belgium. They're an enthusiastic couple of kite flyers who have been active with kites for many years. They make all of their kites by themselves and have a lot of fun making and designing them.
Karin has focused on application-kites and combines modern colours and shapes with each other. She is very precise with her work and you can see that on her kites. Roger is fond of MC Escher, a graphic designer from the Netherlands, his works are often to be found in Roger’s kites. We use the so called "Kuna- technique", layers of fabric sewed together and pull out the right layer with scissors.
In the winter months, new kites are usually built in their specially equipped room in their home, with a nice tune of the radio in the background and a cup of tea.
The making and kite flying is connected with their lives, as a red thread, and therefore some places in the world have allowed them to show their kites, such as in India, England, Malta, Italy, France, The Netherlands , Germany , Portugal, Denmark, Turkey, Canada and Belgium.
They think it's fantastic to play with the wind but also have fun and meet new enthusiastic kiteflyers in the world and even learn more about our great hobby!
