Statement

Johanna Törnqvist is making garments out of recycled textile and plastic material. She is combining craft and fashion into her meticulously handmade and unique necklaces. Her first collection was made out of small pieces of ribbon, lace and buttons that her grandmother had collected during the war to be reused. This treasure got new life in a series of necklaces that were shown at Röhsska Museet. Museum of fashion, design and decorative arts in Gothenburg.

“In my work I want to erase the boundaries between craft, fashion and folklore and give a new perspective of what folklore is today. Traditional craft from different countries has always appealed to me, as well as their resemblance all over the world. My aim is to make clothes and garments that question our preconceived thoughts of age, ethnicity and gender and reveal questions about the origin and identity of the wearer. Anyone can wear my necklaces.”

Johanna Törnqvist graduated from Studio Bercot in Paris in 1990 and is also educated in New York, Japan and Sockholm and has been working with fashion, textile handicraft and ceramics, as well as education.
