The daughter of a textile engineer, Lena was often hypnotized as a young girl by vibrant balls of wool when visiting her Father. After studying art and textile design in 1961 and opened her studio in Helsinki years later. Lena’s vision is enriched by places – the Archipelagos, the lake district of Sääksmäki in Finland and Lapland – and still life, like a flower petal or a fruit bowl. Her mohair wool pieces are loomed, woven and brushed by hand in Finland, adhering to a small-scale production process. Today, her daughter Dita Eklund steers the ship, marking a new chapter for this story that dates back to the 1960s.
