For tiny feets



This is an old project of mine. I love to collect small beautiful fabric at the yard sales or were ever I can find them. But what do you do with the tiny scraps of fabric? These slippers are perfect for the left over fabrics out there. With these I used a mixture of hand printed fabric, solid wool and embroided cloth.

Passion stamp - A tote made with passion

This fabric is printed using the skin of a passionfruit as a stamp. 

It´s like printing with potato stamps, but this is my passion stamp!

And I love it!

creating a totem animal




A hand sewn totem bag for keeping your most special things safe.

If you resonate with this totem, it will stand by you. In perfect symbiosis.

It will protect You and your favourite things for you.
Hand embroided on linnen.

It´s all hand sewn together. Durable and strong. As it should be.

I have so enjoyed working with this one, from start to finish.

It is created intuitive, no templet, no rules. It is made for someone, with a purpose.

All love
