Craftsmanship means education, cleverness and traditions mixed with new science and technology.
In Scandinavia we have a heritage of great craftsmanship. This is something very close to my heart, as we really try to challenge the traditions with a modern and artistic approach.
What you see is what you get. We value an honest and respectful approach to the fabric. Just as the principles of the Danish furniture design tradition.
I think you’ve really got to put it out there that you want to do better and be open - even when you get things wrong. It would be so easy for a brand to just launch a capsule responsible collection and call it a day, but for us it is about putting out our goals, achievements and our wrong turns to keep us on track.
