I am a Finnish fashion designer living in Barcelona for over 20 years. I have been sewing, painting, drawing and making stuff since I was a little girl; cutting, taping, gluing and stapling wherever needed! I believe I destroyed quite a few of my sister's soft toys in the attempt of hairdressing, too! I was a pretty nerdy (tap-dancing) kid and I started sewing on my mum's machine when I was 8. My mother secretly prayed I would not sew my fingers together... Below you have some pictures of me modeling my creations, please excuse the 90's fashions!

The idea of starting this accessory collection came after I made a bow tie for my cousin who was getting married. The feedback I received was great and I started getting requests and orders... That motivated me to take it a step further and that's why I'm here today!

Inspired by nature and by the beauty of all living creatures, plants and flowers, shadows, sunsets and sunrises, colors, smells and feelings, all my accessories are handmade, using only premium materials and painting on 100% silk. I wish to bring the luxury of this material to the day to day life of people like you who appreciate handmade, quality and unique accessories.

I am a declared rabbit lover, a Grease and Elvis fan, and I love heels but cannot stand them!
I also love chocolate-everything, paella, dancing and laughing!

All of my scarves and bow ties are unique and hand painted on 100% silk materials, using colorfast paint. All of them are painted with love and handcrafted with great care and attention to detail by me in my workshop. The hems of scarves and pocket squares have been delicately hand rolled. For more information please check out the FAQs.

Each one is a unique piece of myself! Silk painting is a wonderful way of expressing myself and both the silk and the paint come alive in a very special way. I hope you enjoy my scarves and bow ties as much as I enjoy making them!
