My name is Kirsten and I am the maker behind One Soft Hand. After studying textiles and working for various fashion design studios in London for 5 years, I have just relocated back to Ireland, where I am focusing full time on my own craft. My work focuses on bringing you beautiful hand embroidered items for your home and life. I love working on small scale, detail oriented designs that come together to make beautiful objects.
I am really inspired by historical textiles, 18th and 19th century fashion, old folk art as well as symbols of protection and luck. As I am Irish/Danish, I like to incorporate the traditions of both countries into my pieces as well.
I source as many second hand, vintage and remnant materials as I can for my work. One of my favourite things to do is browse charity shops, markets, and Ebay, so it’s only natural that I incorporate that into my work! The past year I have started adding vintage handbags to my collections as well as lavender bags. This has been a really fun addition to my embroidery work. I make everything by hand in my studio and work on a made to order basis. Working this way allows me to avoid having excess stock. Sourcing fabrics second hand means I can only make a limited number of each item and sometimes they are one of a kind as a result.
I put a lot of time, care and love into every piece I make. I love creating special pieces that will be cherished for a long time and bring delight to your life! * All shipping from Minti Makers comes directly from the makers themselves - Please bear this in mind when ordering from multiple makers, separate shipping will apply.
