Hi! 

I'm a Norwegian textile designer, artist and entrepreneur. I use mending to explore imperfectionism and impermanence, growth, change and decay. In a world where economic growth through consumption is the main goal, mending is a subversive act.

Through visible and creative mending I'm turning the business model for clothes on it's head, making clothes more and more valuable the more they are worn out and mended. I have started a webshop for mending supplies (www.myvisiblemend.no) with the goal of making mending more accessible to more people, while, once it's more established, also make enough to fund my more activist and artistic projects, my research, writing, and creating space and time to share more knowledge, tutorials and instructions.

I'm opening up to let you "buy me a coffee", so I can progress faster with my work, without needing to compromise on my values through collaborations, sponsored partnerships, investors or other influences.

For the time being I don't offer much extra for those who are kind enough to support me, as my work and my priorities still shift a lot day to day and week by week due to my irregular income and I don’t want to give promises I can’t keep.

I want to share as much knowledge as possible for FREE. When you support me, you also support those who can't, but who still want and need help, instructions, motivation and inspiration to mend their clothes and to learn to embrace imperfection in the process. 


With time, as the fundamentals are out there and accessible to all I can offer subscription only tutorials and other perks. Feel free to contact me with wishes and suggestions!

I believe a lot of the value we create happens when we're not "at work" and that it can't be measured through pay checks. I believe we create value in our interactions with family, friends and acquaintances, in our support of each other, our volunteering efforts, when we raise kids or help a friend. When we care for and about each other.

I believe a lot of the "value" that is measured through pay checks and profits are in fact often bad for humans, animals, and the planet. It's often based on over-consumption and exploitation, sold us through marketing that's telling us we're not good enough or worthy of love and connection without it.

And yet, I have a hard time accepting money through a platform like this, which is also part of the reason I believe I should do it.
