Jenny Gordy: etsy find

Jenny Gordy of Wiksten makes pretty garments. Not only does she put mucho love into sewing these fantastic pieces but also the hunting process for her to cute fabric. Searching her local fabric shops, she gets "grossed out" by polyester and prefers linens (like bamboo), wool and 100% cotton fibers. "Natural fibers feel better and, to me are more beautiful. It's a somewhat aesthetic thing." Her self designed labels bear the name Wiksten, her mother's maiden name. She's chosen it because her grandmother taught her how to sew. Now doesn't this just make you want to own something by her.
