From sheep to garment
From sheep to yarn
The main material suppliers to the products are Danish Gotlænder wool, and wool from my Spelsau breed sheeps. It takes several tecknical process before the raw wool is transformed into the final weaving yarn
From yarn to textile
Every design starts with a sketching and design process, where I work with form, patterns colors, tactility and of course the yarn.
From textile to Garment
Before the final textile is woven, a lot of decisions has to be taken. Several samples are woven before the final textile. When the textile is finish the next step is to cut, hand sew and finishing the garments and products before it's delivered to the store or directly to "made on order" customers.

Circular Fashion & Textile DAYS 2022
plus brands are designing a more circular future
More than forty Danish fashion- and
textile brands exhibit products and
solutions based on the Circular Economy during Copenhagen Fashion Week on
August 10th-12th. Rejkjær Textiles one of them.
The Circular Fashion & Textile
Days exhibition is focused on the Circular Economy and is hosted by
Lifestyle & Design Cluster in partnership with CIFF, during
Copenhagen Fashion week.
The exhibition will show 40 Danish fashion- and textile brands,
platform- and service providers, that work with circularity as part of their
business model. Some of the exhibitors have built their business on circular
principles – others are in the process of adapting their existing business to
embrace elements of circularity.
The exhibitors were selected from a high number of applicants and based
on their merits within the Circular Economy.
Med Hannah Ryggen mot HÅP i 2022
"Olavsfest er stolte over å kunne fortelle at tema for året der festivalen feirer 60 år blirHÅP, og at den visuelle profilen henter formspråk og inspirasjon fra Hannah Ryggen (1894-1970). Den internasjonalt anerkjente vevkunstneren som ble født i Sverige men som bodde og produserte det meste av sin kunst på Ørlandet"
I was so privileged to participate in this magnificent project together with 3D designer and artist Martin Brinks. We created the beuatiful "digital wowen posters" for the festival.
