Sea and sky views

  • • Eva grew up in a family with deeply rooted artisan skills
  • • She creates in the northernmost part of the Gulf of Bothnia
  • • Her atelier and shop boast enchanting views

Dropping by Eva Hagström’s studio is already an experience in itself due to its striking setting. Once arrived in Siknäs, it is easy to spot a traditional red wooden building with vivid blue details, surrounded by an incredible view overlooking the Baltic Sea. It is here that Eva works almost every day, hand or loom weaving textiles, embroidering and woodcarving. Looking at the whole picture, you can really see where her inspiration comes from. Groups of visitors are welcomed into an astonishing environment full of creativity and filled with the tools of the trade – looms, threads, tapestries, textile samples and sketches. Moreover, if you are interested in buying Eva’s creations, you can visit the shop, which is located close by.
