Wendin’s patterns and embroideries are inspired by many things in her environment, like music, culture and travels — but also simple things like colors, broken buttons and roses. She describes her embroideries, which are cross-stitched, as stylized images of patterns found in vintage embroidery books. Her passion and philosophy is based on an attempt to update an old tradition, as well as a will to inspire more people not to buy new, but to revalue and reuse the things around them.

Every product made by Wendinskan is unique and is created from reused materials using truly small-scale and environmentally-friendly production methods. ”More and more people actively chose the personal and unique; things that give their homes a sense of identity,” says Wendin. She sells her work via her webpage and happily creates bespoke items for weddings, christenings, and other events.
