This is the work of an incredible artist from Finland named Anni Rapinoja. She is a woman after my own heart as she creates garments with natural materials. She has a background in botany and geography and this informs her work in relation to nature. “The growth of forests, swamps and shores speak to the artist, who refers to willow, moose and reed as her workmates.”
