The collection of clothing, home furnishings and dinnerware attracts by simple design and high quality material as the basis for an unusual dialogue between traditional craftsmanship and modern art.

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. The embroidery but also awaken memories in 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.

traditional but different
The demonstrative use of female handicraft 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.

The handmade collection is a counterpoint in a time of rapidly changing trends and standardization routine and carries our thoughts to a past of another rank, but also to turn them simultaneously. Stability and sustainability to find their place in the special quality of the materials, they are roughly similar as possible to the eco Tex100 standard.
