TEXTILE COLLECTIONS FOR DHS/HEMTEX 2012/2013
With these high-quality collections, we wanted to create textiles to add poetry and beauty to our daily life. I used my own very authentic patterns from nature to transmit the inner vibrating energy and beauty that only the organic forms can give us. Let's do it again!
That "the beauty lays in the imperfections" I felt so strongly in Japan inspired by the Wabi/Sabi philosophy.

A collection based on high quality in textiles and philosophy: fewer objects in our homes but more beautiful and higher qualities!
BLUE DREAMS (BLÅ DRÖMMAR) was the first collection that DHS helped me to realize in 2012/2013 in Sweden...and the idea was to create more quality and poetry into our daily life. They were then sold in 200 Hemtex shops in the Nordic Countries.
To dream about the summer, the wild meadows, the butterflies and the birds...was the feeling we wanted to create. I used quite "wild" flowers and plant images, that I combined with fragments from my father's poems telling us to "live more in the present moment".
I handprinted all products in my studio and the textile printing factory in Sweden (Rydboholm) then tried to find the same handprinted qualities. (Camilla Larsson helped me a lot !) It was fantastic to work with the old Swedish factory... I also made all the colour nuances, especially for this project.
AUTUMN POETRY was the next collection, in reddish and greyish colours on linen and cotton. We then did BLUE DREAMS 2 for spring 2013 with a lot of indigo blue textiles.
The collections were sold for two years in Hemtex shops, and very appreciated. An alternative to the bright colours and simple forms in Ikeas textile collections and more inspired by a fragile and poetic beauty in nature, combined with the poetic fragments.
For the moment these products are sold out, but I'm working on doing a reproduction soon. For me, it is too sad that people can't live with these poetic products any more...
