But who am I?
I’m a 24 year old girl that lives in the black hole of Sweden; Uddevalla. The city where it always seem to rain and where the streets are covered in pesky kids. I study tailoring at YH Skrädderi and are focused on the women side of it all.
Before this I studied at the leather and fur department at Stenebyskolan
A lot of people get all mad when you say you are working in leather, but people need t realize that the materials are a waste product of the meat industry and if there are none that know how to use them it would all go to waste, that as long as we eat meat we are obligated to take care off ALL the parts of the animal. Working with leather and fur does not mean that you use furs and leather from animals bread for just their pelt.
In our work at school we work mainly with cowhide or our own Swedish wild animals such as moose and roe deer.
Isn’t it crazy that I feel that I HAVE to write a disclaimer to not get angry and nasty comments about my things?
Before I started at Stenebyskolan I spent a year at Textil och modedesign (Textile and fashion design) in Skara, were I learned the basics in Sewing, pattern making, weaving and pattern making for the loom. This I have bloged about and it can be read HERE
I am inspired by a lot of things, at the moment the circus and freak show comes high up on the list, among with death and pretty girls.
