SWEDEN | 2018
SECTION OF DRESS: Traditional bird and flowers
An exquisite embroidery created in wool by Elna, who embroiderers for fun alongside playing the violin and being a mum.
I am a Swedish violinist who embroider on my free time. To create with my hands and to see something grow slowly and become something beautiful is exactly what I need to balance the life as a musician. Also - all textile with flowers makes me full of joy!
I learnt embroidery mostly through internet so my style is influenced by many different folkloric traditions, even though my roots are in Sweden.
