To less production in creation
The way to avoid environmental catastrophe is to put an end to wealth, not poverty.
For this reason, I want to earn and spend less money, not more. We can use our imagination to
live well on less each year. By growing our own food, creating networks of social support,
resisting consumerism and materialism, and taking more responsibility for our own lives.
Then we can less pressure on the world resources. I believe we as markets or designers need to
produce less and sell less to begin with. What is about good design now? We already have
enough products to survive our life times, if we can use our imagination and some initiation to
reuse and reduce production and energy waste.
I left my sculpture studio in Sweden and moved to Northern city in Thailand 2010.There are many
remarkable resources here around in Northern city "Chiang Mai", both recyclable materials which are
hilltribe`s costumes and local natural materials which are cotton, linen and hemp. January 2011,
I started to make binder notebooks which are made for recycled paper with one blank side,reducing
energy used in manufactured recycling. These binder note book`s cover materials are linen, cotton and
hemp that local hill tribes sell to us to earn a living. And hill tribe`s embroidery and patchwork of note,
as a masterpiece. Now I challenge to balance creation with culture and resources from local to world.
All is hand-made with love + life. Our small steps will be a big step to change this society to be more
balanced in terms of who we are , and what we are. Less gap between rich and poor & society and
nature. Let`s join us to try to live on less and enjoy our life more! You can meet our products at Café Din
Dee in Chiang Mai, Thailand now. And if you have any questions, you are very welcome to contact us.
