Announcement   Here you will find one of a kind, off beat and handmade items for women and girls - made for Maid in the Forest by danish sculptor and textile artist Sadie Ruben.

Maid in the Forest offers inside-out dresses with unfinished edges, top-stitching and other off beat details, unique feminine headbands, and custome jewelry with my personal twist.

Each item is a unique artwork I've handmade, mixing colours and textures together until I´m satisfied with the outcome, and only presented when I feel it has its own special appearance.

I love going through local thrift shops and the internet looking for beautiful vintage fabric and edwardian lace that I can give a new life. I love the patina these items often have.

Make sure to visit me on Facebook, where I`ll share a little more about myself and have give aways and other fun stuff: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Maid-in-the-Forest

I also have the following shop on Etsy: AliceinWastelandS.etsy.com

I loved absolutely everything about this necklace!! I had it within days, beautifully wrapped and it is even more gorgeous than I had expected it to be. Thank you so much Sadie for this. I will continue to browse through your items for sale at MaidintheForest. Best of luck Paula

About

Creating a fairytale world - piece by piece

I´m Sadie Ruben, I live in Copenhagen, the capitol of Denmark, and I´m the one behind the brand Maid in the Forest.

I´ve been creative for most of my life ever since I was a little girl.

I worked in theatre making costumes for many years. Later I moved on to creating fiber sculptures and did that with succes for 10 years.

One day I realized that I needed a change.

Making jewelry, headpieces and girls’ dresses is like making art. To me it´s about combining colour and structures to see what happens. I never start out with a traditional pattern. I just let my imagination run and see what comes out of my fingers. Usually each dress is a combination of several fabrics which I may hand dye, colours, textures and structures, layers and details added to layers and details....

Nature inspires me. Color, texture and form inspire me. I love every time my inspiration takes me to a new place.

I´m blessed with lovely customers! I work with both child photographers and women planning the day of their lives, and I feel very honoured to be part of this!

I absolutely love when customers sends me photos or upload on the review page. It´s such fun to see my items being used all over the world at special Occasions.

Frequently asked questions

What if my item don´t arrive?

Weather an item is sent with or without tracking, I will refund you in case of lost package.

Custom and personalized orders

At the moment I´m unfortunately not able to do custom orders.

If you want a dress in another size, please get in touch since I can often make a dress a little smaller or bigger without extra charge.

If you want a minor alteration to a headpiece, please get in touch since this can often - but not always - be done too.
