Slow Fashion - Natural Materials - Handmade

I am specialised in handcrafted women’s fashion and inspired by nature, dreams and traditions. With a degree in clothing design and classic massage, the touch of material against skin drives my design work. I’ll pay special attention to comfortable fit and careful selection of natural materials when designing new items, in relation to slow fashion and classic design.

The idea behind the DIY-kit is that you can make your own designer leather case in one evening. The products are made in a timeless design to keep up with trends and current fashion. My grandmother’s cross-stitch sewing inspired me, and the idea was born after magical meetings with wild animals. With the DIY-kit I’ll provide everyone a chance to handcraft designed accessories, made of vegetable tanned leather and decorated with cross-stitch animals.

As to the product and the manufacturing process, I have chosen to use as natural raw materials as possible. The leather used is vegetable-tanned, which has less impact on the environment than leather that is chrome-tanned. I also avoid plastic and synthetic materials as far as possible in the manufacturing process and packaging. Raw materials are mostly from the Nordic countries and the product is made in Finland.

During my childhood I always had a handicraft on hand for rainy days, cold days or just relaxing in the sofa. I have always had the need to do things in my own way, creating things I couldn´t buy or which didn´t exist yet.

I am a listener, by listening I learn more about the world around me. I aim to use this trait in the best way I can in my work as a designer. I am also a kind of a problem solver, I try to find solutions, where others may not see a problem yet. I am also a dreamer, I love to let my mind run free. In my work as a designer I can combine these personal characteristics and that’s why I love my job so much.

  • Laser Cutting

    I design the product and make the patterns. I order the leather and send it to my partner for laser cutting. Afterwards I treat the edges and the surface of the leather myself.
