The lovingly by hand embroidered motif is free to be chosen of the palette with all the other "Miss Sophie" stories.
You can watch these motifs as an animation movie on the hompage: http://www.miss-sophies-planet.com/3-0-Storyroom.html

The red thread runs through the fabric, like Ariadne's thread through the labyrinth. Ariadne's thread is in the Greek mythology the rescue out of the labyrinth, the guarantee for survival and return. Miss Sophie's idiosyncratic images and language text is a poetic statement, which is worn on the second skin: clothing or in that case to be hung on the wall.
The embroidery also awakes memories of the rural and urban middle-class society of the 19th Century usual crafts, as elaborately embroidered drapery. Here the crafting releases itself from any dogma of the subtle cultural domestication from grandmothers times. The stories of Miss Sophie do not longer take place in the reflection of an obtuse mirrow of modest, quiet work, they become a possibility of autobiographical memory traces close to the body.

The fictional character Miss Sophie lives on her own planet from whereshe communicates mysterious stories, embroidered on white fabric . There, people melt together with things to form surreal objects - the head of a girl becomes a bird house, love letters transform into crabs and cats have wings. Within these often cryptic stories, everything seems possible and much to deny his original determination. These story fragments leave it up to you to decide how the story started and how it will end.

The demonstrative use of female handcraft techniques is a medium which is particularly apparent in the use of contemporary art. It has the fuction to show something and make it visible, to decorate, but also to protect against the disappearance of identity and individuality.

Every piece of Miss Sophie´s collection is unique and handmade with love and passion.
