I travelled the world and I live abroad. Yet, inside I still wander wide-open landscapes of home, dreaming Nordic dreams. Along the foggy dream-coasts with sandy soils, I soak the smell of seaweed and spruce, while the salty air tickles my cheeks. Oh, over these blue waters, strong winds shall carry my Nordic dreams.
My latest collection is named ` P L A Y `. My inspiration come from the beautiful Japanese kimono and obis. I have used their pretty colors combinations and translated them into my weavings. I used to visit Tokyo several times during my years working as a fashion designer. I fell totally in love with that city. Arriving in Tokyo was like entering another world.
The other part of the collection is kept in creme and blue hues. I found the pretty dip dyed wool in the town where I was born, Haderslev in the south of Denmark. I saved it for this special project. Still the Japanese kimono´s and obi´s are my inspiration. I like how the thin wool yarn and the bulky wool roving go hand in hand..
I had a wonderful Friday morning meeting with my friend Diana picking apples and sharing creative ideas. I met Diana through Instagram last year, she is so inspiring and warm hearted. Her photo skills are amazing and I enjoy watching her play with light, shadows and composition. Photo credit @diana_lovring
