ABOUT

Logo _mintgreenOutline.png

Is a textile studio exploring EMBRACE through landscape, ambience, movement, colour and incredible soft fabrics.

We build fabric concepts for interior and exterior, always seeking to create materials with essense and not just surface designs. This might be the key to why Emdals fabrics are experienced by clients like an embrace or a hug. The studio is run by artist, designer and master artisan: Signe Emdal since 2007. Her fabric atelier is currently based in Copenhagen by the sea, but she also enjoys working from nomadic offices at remote artist recidensies, around the world.

P O E T R Y

“..intrigued by landscapes of everyday life, Signe combines a poets heart with the hands of a gardener, scanning ambience and transcending the informations into colourful layers of textile constructions, through a variety of digital and analogue textile machinery, raw yarns, fibers and photography. Within the right conditions she hand builds materials while merging old textile techniques in contemporary ways. She calls it: The Garden Concept..”
