So this was a very cold morning in March, temperature below zero, Måns you´re my hero! My mini-model was very patient with me despite the wind that kept on blowing our crops away…Scarves are to be found at Isétan departmentstore Tokyo and hopefully soon in my webshop!


Pillowcase Pinetree

I know I have posted pics on this surface pattern before but as a Tengui (tablecloth). But this pattern called Pine tree has also been produced as a pillow case and today it arrived in the post and I got to see it in real life for the first time! It´s handprinted and so nicely done and it really turned out the way I had hoped for!
