Plur, Tonje

Textile - knit, embroidery and surface treatment

As an artisan and clothing designer, I relate to people and the body as a theme and a format. I express myself through traditional craft techniques such as knitting, embroidery and fringe techniques, but also use digital tools in my work. The themes I often return to are about how we humans relate to each other and our surroundings, about society, and time. I am curious about the moments in life and the speed of which we live in. As a counterweight to everything that goes fast in life, it is liberating to work with time-consuming and slow techniques.
