Has your recent textile and wallpaper-based work introduced you to any new production techniques or methods?
Yes. Both wallpaper and textiles have their own processes and methods, which I've learnt by doing. There are still probably a lot of things I don't know, and which I could do better, but I don't really stress about it. For example, the pattern repeat for my Vår Gård wallpaper is about 9 meters and it has a file size as big as 1GB, which is not very practical. But at least it's unique!
At the moment I am designing my first dishware pattern. The whole technical process is new to me, as well as the idea of printing onto a small porcelain product. I am still in the middle of the learning process.
I enjoy making textiles for kids clothing—not only because of the freedom of making more experimental things, but also because I can make things that my son (and I) can wear! Boys’ clothing is so much more boring than girls’, and I'd love to do something about it. I am very interested in what makes a pattern a girls’ or a boys’ pattern, and my goal is to come up with something in between. I don't really mean unisex, as that’s often considered something "plain", but something splashy and fun that's both girlish and boyish. It's surprisingly difficult, and in my opinion I've only fully succeeded in reaching my goal in one pattern (Blurri, for Vimma).
