Patterns of all kinds are the main focus for me as a textile designer. But attention is also always on the environmental impacts of the textile industry. Sourcing materials that are environmental-friendly and choosing dyes and techniques that are low-impact is key. At the moment I am working on a project involving certifying Norwegian organic wool. Last spring I graduated with an MA in Textile Design from Designskolen Kolding, Denmark. The theme of the graduation-collection was endangered species in Scandinavian animal-prints, based on the wildlife within the borders of the Norwegian capital, Oslo. The entire collection is designed to be compostable. The idea of cradle to cradle is sentral for my work.
