The product: Spira – the coathanger

What’s your secret?
Perhaps it is my upbringing in the Swedish forest, playing among the wild, ancient trees that made me understand the silent, voiceless poetry in true beauty and admire that everything has a function in nature. Nothing exists without a purpose. I want the material, always traceable, to be treated with respect and the people making the pieces to get the recognition they deserve. I want each fiber and flake to hold through better and worse and the object to be so dearly loved that the owner never wants to let it go.
The name Ingridsdotter is a tribute to my mother and her influence on my attention to everything living.
