I was very happy to start to design the Ma-ia Family collection. It is all about fun, playful prints, beautiful colors and textiles, as well as practicle, comfortable, yet attractive garments.

Moomins have been one of my favourite characters already when I was a kid.  It was a privilege to start designing the Moomin kidswer collection at Martinex.

I was very excited to be part of the new collection organized by Annala x Young Finnish Design with my Blizzard print.

 

Blizzard print gets its inspiration from a happy coincidence, where the texture was created almost by itself from paper cut-outs. The print itself is quite versatile, so I can easily see it in many different applications. It is made approachable and down-to-earth, without compromising its beauty.

I had the pleasure to design a summery flower print for Nanso, called Maruna. 

 

Maruna gets its inspiration from the short, yet most beautiful Nordic summer.
