Another FABULOUS shirt that I purchased! Fits to perfection! Lovely fabrics. Brilliant design and beautifully sewn. This designer/owner puts love and care into the items she sells and makes. What a great experience! I am in the process of buying yet another piece from her shop!

Amazingly talented designer and seamstress. Fabulous service. I absolutely LOVE the two shirts I purchase and I plan to buy a LOT more from this shop!

This shirt and its artist/designer/creator are awesome! This very well sewn and cleanly tailored up-cycled shirt was custom modified and looks great with a patterned skirt or jeans.
From sewing to Sewing
All kinds of handcrafts have been my dearest hobby since childhood. My mother is an excellent seamstress, I remember watching her closely as she made my sister and I the most amazing dresses and shirts - well, any kind of clothing we wanted, actually. I learned to sew at a very young age and before I knew it, I was making pieces of clothing for friends and family members as well.
Somewhere along the way I grew up and did what grown-ups are supposed to do; I got a job. And another job after that, and quite a few jobs until I settled in a shoe manufacturing company. I stuck with industrial sewing for seven years, learned a lot about making shoes and even more about how to sew quickly but very accurately. I had a long commute and all in all my days were 10 hours or more, so I had very little time to do anything creative on my own.
I opened my Etsy shop years ago and occasionally listed an item or two; mittens, socks, tote bags and such. Just little things I managed to make after work. A couple of years later I opened a new shop, this one, and finally about a year ago I did what grown-ups are NOT supposed to do. I quit my job and decided to pursue the things I had always wanted.
I have always had a deep connection with nature. My soul is renewed in the forests and fields that surround me here in my hometown. Yet, I love traveling and visiting big cities with lots of people and busy life. I want to combine these two things in my collection by making urban pieces of clothing from nature-friendly and upcycled materials. My dream is to be able to continue on the path I've chosen. Only time will tell where it will take me!
I am a 30-something woman living in a small town in the Northern part of Finland. Having been creative all my life but restricted by the norms of the 9 to 5 society, I finally knew I had to let go and make my dreams come true.
