Much of my inspiration comes from working with either vintage materials or pieces that connect us to our history in some way. Textures and materials are the fabrics that decorate ourselves and inspire emotion, allow us to express ourselves, perhaps reminisce, establish a connection to a lost loved one or even connect with the ages past. While we no longer have the same design or function sensibility, there is beauty in much of the items that are long lost or come from other lands. Your grandmother's brooch, for example, can evoke special feelings and memories, just as a piece that comes from a trip overseas. Fynde's mission is to feel that connection (even if it's not your grandmother's brooch) but imagining the life each of these pieces may have had so that we can remember to cherish the small things around us today.
